Seventh largest market
The name “Taliant” reflects Renault’s strong and consistent international product positioning strategy. Aimed to provide ease of pronunciation in different markets, Taliant also refers to talent and success. Underlining that Renault Taliant was offered for sale in Turkey for the first time, Renault MAİS General Manager Berk Çağdaş said, “Turkey is of great importance for the Renault Group. As of the first quarter of 2021, our country is the 7th largest market of the group globally. The prioritization of Turkish consumers for the Renault Taliant model is an indication of this importance. Since the beginning of 2021, innovation at Renault has been in full swing. Following the Renaulution strategic plan, new logo and mission, it is the newest member of our product line. Thanks to its modern equipment level and solutions for needs, Renault Taliant will bring retail and fleet users together at an ideal price-performance ratio. The B-Sedan segment received a 2.4 percent share of the total passenger market in Turkey in 2020. We respond to the 2 most important demands in the segment with the X-Tronic transmission and LPG options of our Taliant model. In addition to this segment where competition is limited, Taliant will also be an attractive option for C-class consumers. As Turkey’s leading automobile brand, we expect our new model, which stands out with its versatility, to contribute significantly to our sales performance ”.
