Renault Samsung targets Autogas vehicle market

Renault Samsung, the South Korean subsidiary of French carmaker Renault, has been targeting the markets of LPG and commercial vehicles in recent months, to promote sales in the face of intensifying competition.

QM6, a mid-sized sports utility vehicle powered by Autogas, has boosted sales in the carmaker’s SUV segment by attracting Korean customers looking for alternatives to diesel-powered SUVs. Sales of SUVs with diesel engines have decreased amid growing concerns over their negative impact on the environment and stronger regulations limiting CO2 emissions.

Driven by increased sales of the New QM6 LPe, the QM6 ranked second on the list of bestselling mid-sized SUVs in July, with 4,262 units sold in Korea. In July, Renault’s QM6 also took eighth place for number of vehicles sold in Korea, having climbed a notch from the previous month.

Renault’s attempt to discover new market potential in the commercial vehicle sector continues with the Renault Master, a mid-sized van launched in October last year. For more information, please check this link.
