Renault Group set to take Geneva Motor Show 2008 by storm

  • Four Renault world debuts in Geneva: Twingo Renaultsport, Koleos, Laguna GT with four-wheel-steer chassis honed by Renaultsport, plus stunning concept car
  • Pre-show details for Twingo Renaultsport and Koleos already revealed. Laguna GT preliminary information available on Friday 22nd February. Latest concept to be revealed at Renault Press conference (no advance information or photos will be released)
  • Renault Press conference at 08:15 on 4th March, Stand 4130
  • Dacia Press conference at 13:45 on 4th March, Stand 5030

Nearly two years into its growth plan, Renault Commitment 2009, the fruits of the Renault Group?s unprecedented product offensive continue relentlessly. Following a raft of unveilings at the Geneva and Frankfurt motor shows last year, the former will be the setting next month for no fewer than four new Renault world debuts, plus a major announcement regarding the future of its value brand, Dacia.

Initial details for two of the new Renault models at the show have already been released in recent weeks, namely the eagerly-anticipated Twingo Renaultsport and Koleos, the company?s first compact 4x4. Sharing the limelight will be the new ?GT? performance version of New Laguna, with its four-wheel-steer chassis honed by Renaultsport. Further details of this new sports-oriented upper-medium challenger will be released on Friday, 22nd February.

Completing the quartet will be arguably one of the company?s most striking and seductive concept cars. However, no preview information will be released. Following the unprecedented acclaim for the Laguna Coupé Concept at Frankfurt in October last year, the latest beauty to emerge from Renault Design is likely to prove the show-stealer in Switzerland. Like the car itself, details are being kept firmly under wraps until Press Day on 4th March.

Renault Group will be hosting two Press conferences on Tuesday 4th March. Patrick Blain, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, will host the Renault event, taking the covers off of the concept car at 08:15 CET on Stand 4130. Later in the day, a Dacia Press conference is scheduled for 13:45 CET on Stand 5030, which will be given by Béatrice Foucher, Product Director.

Both Press conferences will be aired live on Renault?s global media site, www.media.renault.com. Full corporate and product press kits, plus high resolution photography and product videos for both brands will also be available on the site following their respective Press conferences at 08:30 CET and 14:00 CET. An edited video compilation will also be available for download at the Renault multi-media library ?BroadcastRoom? at www.thenewsmarket.com/renault at 17:00 CET on 5th March. To access the video, please take a moment to register.
