Louis, Marcel and Fernand Renault founded Renault in 1899 The Renault range all have cleverly thought out names such as the 'Kadjar' SUV where 'kad' refers to 4, as in 4 wheel drive and 'jar' comes from a combination of the French words 'agile' and jailir' which mean agility and suddenly emerging.
Renault has produced one of the most unique vehicles on the road launched in 2012 - the Renault Twizy. The Twizy is a 2 seater all-electric quadracycle made for urban living, small enough to park almost anywhere. The rest of the range offers every type of vehicle from the supermini Twingo to the family sized Grand Scenic. The electric Zoe has been a notable success for Renault being named the best-selling all-electric car in Europe in 2015.
