Renault has revealed that it will be revising its award-winning range of light commercial vehicles for the 2023 model year.
The move will see the firm simplifying the number of available van versions, introduce new trim lines and reduce the base price by up to £4,600 on many variants.
For 2023, the range will adopt the same model structure as the recently launched all-new Kangoo, which has seen more than 2,000 orders and pre-orders to date.
Renault PRO+ move to revise its van line-ups
The move to revise its van line-ups will see the Trafic Van being offered in new Start, Advance, Extra and Extra Sport models; Master and Conversions will be available in Start and Advance, with Trafic Passenger in Start and Extra trim.
As part of this process, Renault has simplified its commercial range by 38%, reducing the previous offering of 161 separate versions into a core of 100 distinct models.
This move will, the firm says, increase clarity for customers, improve production and constraint management, and helps reduce lead times to ensure the brand’s customers can be out on the road quickly.
Reduce the base price of many of its light commercial vehicles
Renault has also sought to reduce the base price of many of its light commercial vehicles, with savings of between £3,100 and £4,600 depending on the model.
This means the Trafic van now starts from £25,500 + VAT, the Trafic Passenger from £30,000 + VAT, and the new Master from only £29,750 + VAT.
The versatile range of Master Conversions, meanwhile, starts with the Chassis Cab at £30,000 + VAT.
The new 2023 Renault PRO+ range is available to pre-order now, with order books open officially on 15th December ahead of the first customer deliveries starting in Q1 2023.
There’s more information and details of the nearest Renault dealer on their firm’s website.
