all models soon limited to 180 km / h

Renault will limit the speed of all its new vehicles to 180 km / h to avoid accidents, announced the group’s general manager, Luca de Meo.

Small revolution at Renault. The French manufacturer has announced its intention to limit the speed of its new vehicles to 180 km / h and this for road safety reasons.

To “act” on the speed, which “represents more than a third of the causes of fatal accidents“, It” will be capped depending on the vehicle and will not exceed 180km / h, regardless of the Renault or Dacia model, “said Luca de Meo, CEO of the Renault group.

The leader, who presented his social and environmental “roadmap” to the group’s shareholders a few days ago, did not specify whether the 180 km / h rule would also be applied to the group’s sports brand, Alpine.

The “Safety coach” will be gradually deployed on all of the group’s vehicles.

Renault in Volvo’s footsteps
