Strong Market Share For Renault Group


August proved a strong month for the Renault Group finishing in second position in the overall market with an 11.2% market share. In the LCV market, Renault Group also ended the month in 2nd position with a 15.1% market share.

The Renault brand finished on the podium in August with an 8.6% share of the combined car and van market and in the car market Renault models came in at 5th position thanks to strong performance from Clio and Captur.
Clio #1 in the B segment and #3 in the new car market
Captur #1 in B-SUV segment and #4 overall
Renault vans came in at #2 in the LCV market with Trafic and Master the best-selling models in their respective segments

In the popular B segment Renault Group is now number two year to date with the award winning Dacia Sandero the number two best selling car in the B-Hatch segment, and Renault Clio the fourth best-selling car. For the year to end August, Dacia has recorded a 3.2% market share, up 1.0% versus last year. Even though sales didn’t start until April, all-new Dacia Jogger is already Ireland’s #4 best selling 7-seater car.

Mobilize Financial Services lent over €15 million to Irish customers in August which is up 25% vs August 2021. Part of that success is down to the introduction of more flexible terms on finance agreements as MFS Ireland introduced extended durations on their PCP offering and is now offering durations from 24 – 48 months. 35% off all PCP offers now have a higher duration than the market standard of 36 months. In additional a “zero-deposit required” offer was also introduced to provide greater flexibility for Renault Group customers.

Patrick Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Group Ireland:
“What a great August for Renault Group achieving second position in the overall market and a fantastic 11.2% market share. Our vans are also performing really well with both Trafic and Master the number one bestsellers in their segments. The always popular Clio and Sandero are still achieving great sales in the overall B segment. We are expecting good stock volumes for September and the autumn months and it’s getting closer to the arrival of our all new Megane E-Tech 100% electric which we are planning to have in dealerships in October”.
