Renault Trafic van reaches 200,000 sales

The Renault Trafic has surpassed 200,000 sales in the UK, having been part of the British LCV market for almost 35 years.

Now in its third generation, the latest Renault Trafic went on sale in the UK in late 2014, and is available in a choice of four bodystyles – Panel Van, Crew Van, to carry up to six people and equipment, Platform Cab and Passenger, which seats up to nine people.

Trafic III can also be customised with 70 variants in the UK, two different heights, two different lengths, panel van, crew-van, platform cab and passenger versions.

Thanks to its new range of downsized, turbocharged engines, the Renault Trafic III is more economical with fuel economy of up to 50.4mpg (NEDC Combined) and CO2 emissions from 149g/km .

As of the end of March 2016, 18,189 of the latest third generation Trafics have been sold  in the UK since launch in late 2014.

Steve Wilson, LCV product manager, Renault UK, said: “The Trafic has proved very successful in the UK since it was first launched here 35 years ago. To achieve 200,000 sales shows the Trafic really hit a chord with business users in the UK. It has innovated in the van market since 1981, offering a robust, user-friendly vehicle in a wide number of bodystyles and conversion options. The latest Trafic has proved fantastically popular since launching here in late 2014 and helped Renault LCVs to a record year in the UK in 2015.”
