“What if your new car was a Renault Occasions? “
In recent years, the second-hand market has continued to develop. Both a real fashion phenomenon and a real ecological commitment, many players are investing in the circular economy. Renault did not wait for this to become fashionable before selling second-hand vehicles. This is the observation that the Brand has decided to promote through a new platform and a new campaign.
Renault has been refurbishing, overhauling, and reselling second-hand vehicles, with theadded benefit of Renault’s guarantees, since 1959. A heritage that allows the brand to distinguish itself from the pure players who have just arrived on the second-hand market. For Renault, second-hand cars are not a fashion phenomenon, they have been a real investment for over 60 years. In the image of the current transformation, which is at the heart of the Brand’s values, the Flins factory has been transformed into a “Refactory” in order to offer a new life to Renault second-hand vehicles in the near future. These are all commitments that justify the creation of renew to promote a pioneering spirit and a strategic commitment by the Group to guarantee the best in used cars for the future.
This new platform comes to life through a new TV, press and digital campaign…
In the TV film, a young couple from the 1960s is strolling through the streets of Paris when they pass a Renault Occasions dealership. Seduced by the shop, they decide to enter. After being invited by the salesman to visit the refurbishing workshop, they come face to face with a used Renault Megane that looks like new. However, the car stands out in the 1960s décor, as it is a modern car. Convinced, they decide to buy it. The woman took the wheel and the lovers left with the vehicle, whose modernity did not fail to arouse the curiosity of passers-by.
Renault and Publicis Conseil collaborated with the director Martin Werner to produce this film, which takes us back to the time when Renault began to invest in the second-hand market.
The settings and atmosphere are perfectly underlined by the music of “Les Demoiselles de Rochefort” composed by Michel Legrand in 1967.
At the same time, the photographer Emir Haveric was entrusted with the creation of colorful prints that perfectly combine the aesthetics of fashion and the automobile to highlight the vehicles and the associated guarantees.
“Today we are all trying to consume differently. Based on this collective awareness, but also on our history, we have imagined renew to enhance the quality of our services and guarantees and to ensure that our second-hand vehicles give you the same emotions as a new vehicle. And that’s new! “. Explains Arnaud Belloni, Renault Brand Global Chief Marketing Officer.
