Auto Shanghai: Renault product offensive in China continues
Auto Shanghai 2017 also sees Renault present its flagship model, the Espace, which is due to go on sale in China in the second half of the year, as well as upgrades for the Kadjar range. Following the launches of the Captur, the Kadjar and the new Koleos in 2016, Renault’s product offensive in China continues with a comprehensive range of crossovers to meet the demands of customers in the country where the segment accounted for 38.6 percent of total sales in 2016.
At the beginning of 2017, just over one year after Renault’s inauguration of the Wuhan, China plant, Renault was voted ‘Best Foreign Brand’ and Dongfeng Renault Automotive Company (DRAC) was named ‘Best Automobile Manufacturer in a Joint Venture’ for new vehicle quality. The survey was conducted by Autohome, China’s most popular website for car buyers (22.7 million visitors daily), in recognition of Renault’s ambitious, quality-focused strategy.
Renault’s stand at Auto Shanghai 2017 is in Hall 7.2. The press conference is scheduled for 10:20am local time.
