PARIS (Thomson Financial) – The new version of Renault’s Laguna car will go on sale in October, a Renault spokeswoman said, to be preceded by a detailed presentation of the product at the end of August.
The spokeswoman was reacting to a report in La Tribune this morning.
The newspaper said the new car is due to go on sale in France on October 12, but the Renault spokeswoman rejected this date.
She also declined to comment on La Tribune’s claim that Renault is targeting 160,000-180,000 in annual unit sales for the model, although she said the company would give figures on production capacity on Monday, when the new Laguna is unveiled to the press for the first time.
Renault had confirmed earlier that the initial press launch will take place on Monday.
The spokeswoman added that this will be followed by a detailed technical and financial presentation of the car on August 21.
The car will then be presented to the public for the first time at the Frankfurt motor show in September, she said, before going on sale in October.
