Rate this post

Renault Trucks has recorded significant business growth in 2021, with a total of 51,460 vehicles invoiced (+25%). In Europe, Renault Trucks confirmed good results, with a 41% increase in invoicing in the market for vehicles over 6 tons and increased activity in all its markets. In France, the manufacturer now boasts a ten-year high market share of 29.8%. The brand performed particularly well in Poland, with an 89% increase (1,705 vehicles), and the UK (+56%).

In 2021 the manufacturer made its best progress in Turkey, with a market share of 6.7%, the highest for 17 years, and achieved 8% in the Middle East. In Africa, Latin America and Asia, Renault Trucks achieved a market share of 16% (+5 points), with remarkable performances in Chile, Morocco and Indonesia.

The demand for used trucks remained very high in a market boosted by the upturn in activity and a shortage of new vehicles due to disruptions to production. Renault Trucks invoiced 13% (8,926 units) fewer vehicles than in 2020, due to a historically low stock level of under 1,000 vehicles. In 2021, Renault Trucks continued its investment in the circular economy, converting 300 vehicles at its Used Trucks Factory in Bourg-en-Bresse and launching a limited series of used T Robust 13 L tractors designed to last at least 1 million km. 

For several years now, Renault Trucks’ range of electric trucks has been constantly expanding and its sales volumes reflect this progress: in 2021, 249 electric trucks were delivered and 613 were ordered. In a European market where volumes remain modest (450 registrations), the manufacturer’s share stands at 17%. Renault Trucks is stepping up its strategy with increased ambitions: 50% of its sales volumes in 2030 will comprise electric vehicles and 100% of the vehicles it markets will be carbon neutral by 2040es en carbone en 2040.
