CHAUFFEURS

At the close of the Second World War, Renault realized that a new clientele may be interested in its cars. So it decided to offer simple models, easy to maintain and drive, so that chauffeurs were no longer needed. The first car of this type was Renault 10 CV Type GS (1920), which evolved into Type IG then Type II.

REQUIRED

Renault Type II presented several interesting features. First of all, the gearbox, the transmission shaft and the axle were joined together without any mechanical (universal joints) or flexible (flectors) articulation. In addition, the rear suspension was achieved by a single transverse leaf spring. The model was offered in several versions.

DELIVERED TO

YOUR DOOR

The Type II van version presented here is in the colours of Felix Potin, the name of the famed grocer who opened his first store in 1844 in Paris. The retail name disappeared in 1995, after having graced up to 1,300 stores. The sales methods employed by this brand included a home delivery service introduced in 1870, first using horse-drawn carts then motor cars (with support from Renault Type II) serving 217 areas of the Paris region.
