The Renault Arkana, with 1,223 units, was the best seller in the parent brand's range, followed by the Clio (1,193) and Captur (967). In the Dacia brand, the top seller was the Duster (1,434), followed by the Sandero (1,318) and the Jogger 7-seater (637).

Patrick Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Group, said he was very happy with the group's performance given supply challenges earlier in the year."It has been a good start to 2023 with good supply across both brands," he added, noting the new brand identity Dacia range which has arrived and the all new Megane E-Tech electric for which consumer interest and orders are high.
