Renault

on the bock

2001 May, right: Renault car and Scenic on the docks as Renault returns to Australia with a shipment of 450 vehicles - Clio Renault Sport, Scenic compact monospace, Scenic RX4, and Megane Cabriolet. They officially go on sale on 23 May.

2001 February: Renault and Nissan (~37% owned by R') are to develop a joint a new "platform" for mid-size (C-class) cars and plan to build ~2 million car per year based on it. This is part of their plan to rationalise the platforms of the two companies.

2000 April: Renault agreed to sell its truck business, Renault V.I. / Mack, to Volvo. Just as Volvo decided to concentrate on trucks, having sold its division to Ford, so Renault has decided to concentrate on cars.

2000: Renault has come up with a light-duty four wheel drive version of its Megane Scenic people mover. The 4WD RX4 will compete with the likes of Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester. It has a 2 litre petrol, or a 1.9 litre diesel engine. Australians might get the RX4 through Nissan dealers thanks to Renaults major stake in Nissan.

1999: Renault took up a 36.8% share of Nissan which is overloaded with debt.
