Renault España

In April 1953 the first 4CVs rolled off Renault’s new assembly lines in Spain. Sixty years later Renault is celebrating the anniversary of that first step at the World Series by Renault meeting at Motorland Aragon.

The celebrations follow the first commemorative event of the year, back in February, when Renault Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn accompanied King Juan Carlos of Spain on a visit to the company’s Valladolid plant, where the Captur and Twizy are assembled.

The start of the new World Series by Renault season at Motorland Aragon has put the spotlight firmly back on Renault España’s 60th anniversary. Playing starring roles in the Renault Village over the weekend were two very special cars: the Renault 4CV, over a million of which were built and which enjoyed its heyday in the 1950s; and the Renault Fiftie, the breathtaking concept car created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 4CV.

“It’s a very important year for Renault in Spain,” commented Renault España Communications Director Jesus Presa. “We are preparing a number of events to show what Renault España is all about, and the two World Series by Renault meetings form part of that objective. We want to show just how good our marque is at making production cars and how competitive it is in motorsport. It’s true to say that you can spend your whole life with Renault.”

Describing the other events lined up for this year, Presa said: “We’ve got a big date next month at the Barcelona Motor Show, and then we’ll be staging exhibitions on Renault’s 60 years in Spain in Valladolid, Valencia and most probably Seville.”
