Renault has set a production record with the Scenic. The anniversary car of the second generation compact van goes to a customer from Germany.
Renault has celebrated the Scenic anniversary. The second-generation compact van from the French car manufacturer rolled off the assembly line at Renault's Georges Besse plant in Douai for the millionth time. With a production time of just under three years, this means a new production record for the vehicle. The anniversary copy goes to a customer from Germany. In total, over three million compact vans have rolled off the assembly lines since the market launch in 1996. Since the beginning, the Scénic has asserted itself as the best-selling compact van in Europe.
On the market since 1996
The trendsetter among compact vans established a completely new body shape in Europe, which has found numerous imitators to this day. The first Scénic was named “Car of the Year” in 1997. Within a very short time, the Scénic made up to 48 percent of the Mégane family and required the production of up to 1,400 units per day.
The second generation set new standards at the market launch in 2003: The Scénic was the first compact van to achieve the highest rating of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test. In addition, with the Grand Scénic, Renault has been the only manufacturer to offer a long body version with seven seats since 2004.
