Originally named the Société Renault Frères, Groupe Renault was founded in 1899 by Louis Renault and his brothers Marcel and Fernand. The first Renault car, the Renault Voiturette 1CV, was sold to a friend of Louis' father in December 1898.
It was in 1905 that the Renault brand cemented its place in the automotive industry by making its first volume sale. The sale was to the Société des Automobiles de Place who bought Renault AG1 cars to establish a taxi fleet.
Renault has now operated worldwide for more than 120 years and has been at the heart of the transport revolution. During that time, Renault has enjoyed many partnerships with other manufacturers and is now known as Groupe Renault. The company is responsible for marketing five unique brands including Renault, Dacia, Renault Samsung Motors, Alpine and Lada.
Like most major automobile manufacturers, Renault has been successful in the motorsport arena and competes in many different categories around the world including Formula 1, World Rally, and Sports Cars.
