The Renault-Nissan Alliance today announced that Nissan and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), the utility company operating in the San Diego, Calif., region, are forming a partnership to advance zero-emission mobility by promoting the development of an electric vehicle (EV) charging network. Nissan will introduce ZEVs in the United States in 2010 and will mass market ZEVs globally two years later. The announcement coincides with the fi

Alongside six other world debuts from French marque Renault, this year’s Geneva motor show also witnessed the unveiling of the latest member of the New Mégane family, with the arrival of the Sport Tourer version. In addition to its dynamic looks, New Mégane Sport Tourer has a distinctive character and lives up to the pledge made at the time of the hatchback version's release that every member of the New Renault Mégane family would have its own, clear-cut personality. New Mégane Spor

Since 2000, the successive variants of Clio Renaultsport have made it the best-selling performance hatchback in its class, with worldwide sales totalling more than 70,000 cars. The strengths of the chassis, brakes and steering of the Clio Renaultsport 197 combined with the precision of its gearbox have resulted in the model being widely praised as the class leader, by the media and demanding owners alike. To provide a match that is more closely tailored still to the demands and needs of its cust

Renault customers benefit from a choice of two MPVs which each have their own distinctive personalities. Scenic and Grand Scenic both feature taut, fluid lines that sweep across the generously-proportioned body panels to exude a sense of dynamism and robustness. Yet while the design of both versions shares an undeniable family likeness with the Megane’s other models, their profiles are quite different. Like Megane Coupe, Scenic features a central grille flanked by satin-effect chrome finish

As the latest in a long line of Renault performance models, New Mégane Renaultsport 250 stands out through its exhilarating performance and handling. The fusion of its extra 25hp with unmistakable sporting coupé credentials and choice of two chassis settings (sport and Cup, the latter with a limited slip differential) is clear evidence that New Mégane Renaultsport has been honed to delight enthusiasts. Coming after Mégane F1 Team R26 and Mégane R26.R, New Mégane Renaultsport 250 profits fully from Renault

The Geneva Motor Show sees Renault take the wraps off the latest Hatch and Sport Tourer versions of the best-selling Clio. Clio 2009's styling, comfort, versatility, safety credentials and equipment, which form a package worthy of that of models from the next segment up, are sure to appeal to a large, loyal customer base worldwide. At the same time, its excellent build quality makes it one of the most reliable cars of its class. In response to customer demand, Clio 2009 features: renewe

New design reinforcing Clio's family ties with New Mégane New Clio sits squarely on the road and boasts revised styling, with the lines of the new headlamps now extending down to the lateral upturns of the front air intake. The broad grille in the lower part of the new front bumper sets off the dynamic styling with the presence of gloss black protective mouldings. The revised design of the rear lights extends the waist line across the hatch, while the uncluttered approach to the design of the

Renault’s New Mégane Trophy makes its UK debut alongside its hardcore road-going sister Mégane Renaultsport R26.R in a one-two that is guaranteed to wow the crowds at Autosport International, the world’s biggest motorsport show, on 8th-11th January, 2009. The cars join the Clio Renaultsport Cup race car, Formula Renault 2.0 single-seater car and Clio Renaultsport R3 rally car as stars of the Renault Sport UK stand, which once again hosts a

Proving that its first compact 4x4 has as much substance as style, Renault’s recently launched Koleos has driven away with a hat-trick of titles at Planet 4x4 magazine’s 2008 awards, including the ‘4x4 of the Year’ trophy. Fending off fierce competition from 47 rugged contenders, including perennial favourites such as the Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover, the French marque’s first foray into the 4x4 arena triumphed initially over

With a score of 37 points out of 37 in its Euro NCAP crash tests, Renault’s New Mégane has achieved the joint highest-ever score, matching that of Qashqai, from sister company Nissan, last year. New Mégane becomes the 11th Renault model to earn the top five-star rating, which is unsurprising given that safety is in its genes. As a fundamental part of the car, its active and passive safety levels were developed from the outset to deliver ne
