Renault Spain strengthens commitment to Autogas
Renault Group and Repsol have renewed their collaboration agreement with the aim of continuing to promote Autogas in the automotive sector in Spain, as part of their strategy to encourage the use of alternative energies. Both companies share their vision on sustainable mobility and zero emissions targets, and actively work on all the alternatives available on the market.
Thanks to this partnership, the companies will promote the benefits of Autogas as an alternative and eco-friendly fuel, through cars from the Dacia ECO-G range (Duster and Sandero) and the Renault LPG range (Clio and Captur). Likewise, the energy company will carry out actions for both private and professional customer to promote the acquisition of Renault vehicles.
Both Dacia and Renault models hold the top positions in the Autogas market in Spain. In 2020, the Dacia Sandero has been the leader, with 3,551 units sold and a 31.1% market share, followed by Renault Clio in the second position, and Dacia Duster in the third place.
“This agreement helps us to continue to position Autogas as a real alternative for today’s mobility, because it offers great autonomy and has a wide network of Repsol service stations. Furthermore, it reinforces our position as a multi-energy company, a leader in mobility and focused on the objective of achieving zero net emissions by 2050, being the first company in the sector to adopt this ambitious goal,” said José Barreiro, Executive Director, Iberia Mobility, Repsol.
Francisco Hidalgo, General Director of the Dacia brand in Iberia, also commented: “The value of the Dacia brand and the extraordinary reception it has had historically in Spain is partly based on the success of its LPG range, where it covers two-thirds of the market thanks to its different models. We have gone hand in hand with Repsol, which has been progressively increasing its presence throughout Spain. This is essential to set ourselves new ambitions in a market where alternative energies do not stop increasing their growth.”
Autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, with benefits similar to those of traditional fuels, but with very low emissions. There are 15 million LPG-powered vehicles in Europe and more than 120,000 in Spain. For more information, please visit this link.
