THE VAN

THAT KEEPS

ON GIVING

After launching Renault 4L, the French brand created a van version of this legendary model (8,135,424 of them were built!). The F4 van’s motto was “give a lot, ask little”.

GET LOADING!

With a loading capacity of 300 kg and an interior volume of almost 2 m3, Renault 4 F4 quickly became THE must-have van for tradesmen, government agencies and leading companies alike. It was also available in a long version, known as F6, which could carry up to 475 kg. Hardcore!

DURABLE

The “ask little” part of its motto made Renault 4 F4 van particularly popular. Economical to maintain and rock solid, it underwent a number of improvements over its life (reinforced rear torsion bars, extended wheelbase, wide wheels, a more powerful engine, front disc brakes, etc.).

GIRAFFE-INSPIRED

One of Renault 4 F4’s remarkable features was its lift-up, removable domed rear panel on its roof. Nicknamed ‘girafon’ (giraffe roof), it allowed bulky objects to be stowed high up while keeping the rear door closed. The idea of this Renault-exclusive roof hatch would later appear on Express and then on Kangoo.
