Patrick Magee, County Operations Director, Renault Group:
“We are very happy with Renault Group coming in at 5th place in the overall market in 2022 given supply challenges earlier in the year. We kept our promise on supply and with our own bank Mobilize Financial Services lending over €160 million in 2022, it was a good year. Great to see the Group taking first place in the B-segment with Sandero proving as popular as ever with the Irish customer in 2022 and also to see the all new Dacia Jogger achieving great results, in podium place in the 7-seat market truly reflecting its award winning status as the most affordable 7-seater in Ireland. It has been a good start to 2023 with good supply across both brands and Renault Master in particular and also our new brand identity Dacia range which has arrived and is now in our dealerships across the country. The highly anticipated all new Megane E-Tech 100% electric has arrived in dealerships with consumer interest and orders high”.
