“I am delighted with the results for April, putting Renault at its highest positioning in five years at over 9.5% of the market. Dacia has once again performed brilliantly taking 4.9% of the car market last month, and our vans are continuing to land on the podium each month. The availability of finance is once again a key element of the Group’s success and with our 26 dealerships offering finance options for individual and business customers, it’s never been easier to buy a Renault or Dacia. We have a fantastic range of cars and vans in the Group stable now which are performing extremely well in the build-up to the 152 registration period”.
