El Renault Espace It has been one of the most successful large minivan type models over the years. The first generation was launched in 1984 and since then we have seen a total of five different ones. Unfortunately for this car model and segment, SUVs have cannibalized their sales, but Renault confirms that there will be a sixth installment.
The gala firm has confirmed today that the Renault Espace will stay alive, with a new generation. Of course, it will change the concept quite a bit. And it is that, to stay afloat, the large minivan it will become a large SUV, which will be offered with both 5 and 7 seats. They say from the brand that it will continue to offer "comfort, innovation and high range”. Of course, also spacious.
The new Renault Espace will be presented worldwide next springThat is, in just a few months. For the moment, the brand with the rhombus has not wanted to give us many details about this new model, but they do make it clear that it will be an SUV and, furthermore, that it will resort to the Alliance CMF-CD platform.
Although they have not shown images of prototypes or sketches, they have wanted to show the vehicle registration, which corresponds to the image that we see in the header. We can see that the letters ESPAC go in one tone and typography, while the final E uses another.
Logic makes us think that that last different E wants to tell us something else. We can be almost sure that the new Renault Espace will have electrified motorizations, whether they are microhybrids, conventional hybrids or plug-in hybrids. But from there, everything is a mystery. Therefore, we have no choice but to wait for the French firm to speak again and leave us some more details about its next great SUV.
