Düsseldorf motor show: nomadic life by Renault for freedom lovers
RENAULT PRESENTS ITS RENEWED CAMPERVAN RANGE EXPANDED WITH NEW TRAFIC SPACENOMAD FOR EUROPE
- Presented at the CARAVAN SALON in Düsseldorf, All-new Trafic SpaceNomad will be added to the Renault catalogue at the beginning of 2022. After Switzerland, it will be marketed in five other European countries.
- Converted by French campervan manufacturer Pilote, All-new Trafic SpaceNomad is available in two lengths with four or five seats. Its pop-up roof creates space for two large beds as well as a shower and kitchenette so travellers can set off on their journeys without having to worry about accommodations.
- Renault will share its hippie-chic vision of the campervan with its Hippie Caviar Hotel show car, alongside the iconic Estafette campervan.
- All-new SpaceClass Escapade and Master Campervan will complete the Renault offer at the Düsseldorf Motor Show.
ALL-NEW TRAFIC SPACENOMAD: ALWAYS READY TO HIT THE ROAD
Already growing in popularity, the campervan is essential after a period of repeated lockdowns. The flexibility of this mode of travel facilitates the trips even with the sanitary constraints and offers a total freedom. In 2020, after a successful trial on the Swiss market, Renault decided to extend the marketing of SpaceNomad in Europe: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark and France. Inspired by New Trafic and transformed by Pilote, it is produced at Renault’s Sandouville plant and will be available in the network in early 2022. Available in two lengths, it offers four- and five-seat versions and a wide selection of engines, from 110 to 170 hp, with manual and automatic gearboxes (for the 150 and 170 hp engines). All-new Trafic SpaceNomad adapts to meet the diverse needs of its customers in search of freedom without the accommodation or parking constraints.
Renault's ambition is to expand its nomadic range in Europe, in a market that has been exploding for the last 10 years.
After a successful test in Switzerland, All-New Trafic SpaceNomad extends its scope to freedom aficionados.

Inside, an all-new, redesigned dashboard offers up to 34 litres of storage space in the front of the vehicle and up to 300L in the back. The design has been enhanced with chrome inserts, diamond-cut wheels and metallic paints (including the new Carmine Red). For added peace of mind on board, the van offers new driving aids such as active emergency braking, lane departure warning, driver monitoring system and blind spot warning.
TECHNOLOGIES TO COMBINE NOMADIC LIFE AND CONNECTIVITY
