This offering is done within the framework of National plan to rebuild the Gendarmerie vehiclestarted in 2020. Indeed, we still find on our roads many copies of the old Renault Kangoo, Renault Scenic, Citroën Berlingo and other Peugeot Partners that do not have breath, which therefore should be retired soon.

This program for the modification of French law enforcement vehicles has been allocated a large budget of 400 million euros, with an order for more than 15,000 vehicles. Last year alone, no less than 1,260 units of the Peugeot 5008 were delivered to the Gendarmerie and the National Police.

Renault Grand Scenic: delivery underway

Unlike the general public model that offers 7 seats, the Renault Grand Scenic of the Gendarmerie has only 5 seats: this allows to store a large amount of boot, which will make it possible to transport the necessary equipment during the intervention. Under the hood, we find a four-cylinder petrol engine TCe 1.3 liter with 160 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque, with a 7-speed EDC dual-clutch gearbox.

The first delivery of the Gendarmerie Renault Grand Scenic has already begun: the first copy has already been delivered this summer to the Gendarmerie of Condom, in the department of Gers.
