The Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy has set a new lap time on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife racetrack, in 8 minutes, 23 seconds, as set by German magazine Sport Auto, and Renault is claiming the crown for the “fastest hot hatch” on the ‘Ring. There’s some fine-print though.
Renault has given us exterior images of the 2016 Megane before its full debut next week at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
So it has been a year and 30,000 km since we bought our Renault Megane. Buying this car was an experiment, as it is the least noticed and least trusted car by the general public. Contrary to popular belief though, the car has chugged along rather well, probably due to the fact that it is almost purely a Nissan underneath, from almost every nut and bolt, right up to the engine and transmission. It may not have exceeded our expectations, but it has never let us down either. For the price paid, we actually do not have any complaints.
Renault recently unveiled two new models – the Duster Oroch and the Sandero RS 2.0.
Arabian Automobiles, the exclusive distributor of Renault in Dubai and Northern Emirates, and Renault Middle East in partnership with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) discussed electric vehicles and sustainable transport at the Electric Vehicle Conference held in Dubai.
The popular Renault Duster underwent a facelift a year ago in its home market of Europe, but its launch was delayed in the GCC for whatever reason. A facelifted version has now officially been launched at an event in Abu Dhabi, with some minor but important features, as well as a different grille.
The only electric cars you’ll ever see in the GCC are at golf clubs, with little wheels and no doors. Sure, there are the unloved Lexus hybrids, there was that pricey Fisker Karma with the backup petrol engine, and some Chevy Volts were spotted testing in Dubai before disappearing for obvious reasons, but there are big things happening this week on the electric front. Dubai’s DEWA utility company has just announced the first dedicated charging station here for electric cars, in what is to become a network all over Dubai soon. And Renault is hoping to bank on that with the Zoe hatchback and the Twizy runabout.
