All-new Renault Arkana and Captur confirmed for Oz

But Clio, Kadjar, Zoe and all mainstream Megane models will be axed as French brand focuses on SUVs and LCVs

Renault will effectively exit the EV, light-car and mainstream small-car space in Australia when stocks of the current Zoe, Clio and non-RS Megane models are exhausted in the near future.

Instead, the French brand will focus on SUVs and light commercial vehicles, with the new Renault Captur and all-new Renault Arkana now both confirmed for Australian release in 2021, when the latter will replace the short-lived Kadjar.

While the compact Renault Kangoo Maxi ZE electric van remains on sale, it has found just 13 Aussie buyers so far in 2020, and the third-generation Zoe revealed in France last June won’t be imported to Australia by Europe’s top-selling EV brand.

Just eight Renault Zoes were sold here in the first half of this year and only a handful remain in dealer showrooms.
