7th September, 2015

Renault has revealed the Alaskan Concept which marks the first step forward in its bid to win over customers in the constantly-growing large utility market. Uts account for around one-third of total LCV sales and opens up a new segment for a new Renault product development plan.

The Renault Alaskan Concept is a striking show vehicle that paves the way for a ute that will have a global calling. It combines a payload of one tonne with cutting-edge, 'athletic' styling to meet the requirements of business users and individuals alike.

The Alaskan Conceptís status-enhancing design fits perfectly with the aesthetic expectations of the ute market, whilst remaining true to the Renault brandís own styling cues.

The Alaskan Concept is powered by Renaultís proven four-cylinder, twin turbo diesel engine which features in the existing Renault Master range.

The Alaskan Concept is a Ďwork hard, play hardí all-road vehicle designed to meet the requirements of three different worlds: business and leisure use, plus everyday motoring.

Renault and Hasselblad worked jointly to underline the Alaskan Conceptís ability to adapt to three different types of use: business and leisure use, and everyday motoring.

  • The production versionís design will be similar in spirit to that of the Alaskan Concept and will feature the same dimensions,
  • A broad range of body types and powertrains will be available,
  • It will be a high-end pick-up for business and leisure use, as well as for everyday motoring.

Renault's new one-tonne utilty will be unveiled in the first half of 2016.
