Renault dubs 2015 'year of the conversion'

Renault has dubbed 2015 the year of the conversion as it moves to grab a bigger slice of the ever-growing specialist model market.

There were no fewer than 17 different versions of the Master on display at the show, alongside other models in the range.

Renault is able to satisfy around 75% of the conversion demands of customers straight from its factories, but it also has a network of 30 UK-based approved converters who are skilled in building specialist vehicles on demand.

Converted Renault vans are available from any of the company’s 151 UK sales and service outlets, but there are also 38 Renault Pro+ dealers who specialise in business sales, including converted vehicles. These are located throughout the country and have dedicated business sales and aftersales teams with extended working hours to meet the demands of business customers.

Steve Wilson, LCV product manager, Renault UK said: “Renault recognises that every business is unique and has specific requirements. We are committed to providing vehicles to fit those needs. 

“We try to tailor our range to suit the greatest needs with our factory-built conversions so there is only one invoice and one contact, but for customers who require something more specific to their needs, our network of approved converters is skilled in building specialist and bespoke converted vehicles.”

One particular showstopper on the stand was an ambulance version of the Twizy Cargo, while outside visitors were able to sample cooking from a catering van supplied to the Jamie Oliver group.
