Renault van insurance

Renault S.A. is a French manufacturer, which produces cars and vans. Additionally, they produce larger vehicles like tractors, buses, and trucks. Formed in 1898 by Louis, Marcel, and Fernand Renault, the company started gaining notice by their participation in auto racing. To wit, Marcel Renault was killed in a racing accident in 1903, and after Fernands retirement in 1906, Louis took full control of the company.

Renaults legacy is one built on innovation. Owners of the patent for the first turbocharger, Renault was responsible for the first sedan. As well as sedans, which were at first luxury vehicles, the company produced taxicabs, buses, and a number of cargo vehicles and with the advent of WWI, started producing military items such as airplanes and tanks. At that time, Renault was the worlds leader in manufacturing airplane engines, and the company, and Louis, received much acclaim for military designs. By 1918, Renault was the largest private manufacturer in France.

Shortly thereafter, the company started branching out, and built much agricultural and industrial machinery. At the same time, it struggled to compete with more affordable automakers such as Volkswagen and Fiat.

After Louis died in prison due to his purported connection to the Nazis in WWII, Renault and its factories became a public industry, and the nationalisation of Renault led to new market successes. The 4CV model, released in 1946, competed well with the Morris Minor and the early Volkswagen Beetle. The 4CV remained in production until 1961 due to its continued popularity.

The Renault 4 and the Renault 8, released in the early 1960s, proved to be very successful for the company, with the Renault 4 staying in production until the early 1990s. Continuing their legacy for innovation, the Renault 16 from 1966 was a successful model and was the first non-subcompact hatchback. Its continued success allowed the 16 to set the benchmark for all future hatchbacks. The Renault 5, and later, the Super5, were also successes in the wake of the early 1970s energy crisis. Still though, the company did not have a strong foothold in the American market, and they sought to correct this with a partnership with AMC.
