RENAULT

A minor revolution at Renault: in 1927 the system for naming models changed, switching from letter-based names (such as Type A, Type K, Type NN, etc.) or according to power (6 hp, 10 hp or 40 hp) to “real” model names. The first car to bear this new name type was Renault Monasix, launched in 1927.

ALL ABOUT

THE CYLINDERS

The new Renault naming system, inaugurated by Renault Monasix, indicated the model’s position in the range (first of all a prefix: in this case Mona) but also the number of engine cylinders, by the suffix (six cylinders for the Renault Monasix).

BATTERY

POWER

Renault Monasix was equipped with a 6-cylinder engine (as it name indicates). In 1928, the majority of Renault models were equipped with this type of engine (including the low and middle range models). It was a 1.5 L engine (1476 cc to be precise), the smallest engine of this type at the time. Renault Monasix also had a battery, whereas battery starting was not necessarily the norm in the 1920s.
