The outdated Renault Scenic will survive, but the format will change. The next generation is expected in 2024.

The Scenic is one of the pioneers of the compact van class, which sold more than 300,000 units per year in Europe in the penultimate decade and was one of Renault’s best-selling locomotives.

In pre-COVID 2019, Scenic sold 76,045 units in Europe, according to CarSalesBase, in 2020 demand fell to 36,592 units and in 2021 to 20,678 units.

The main competitor of the new Scenic in the European market will be the Volkswagen ID.4 crossover. The French SUV will be offered in single- or twin-engine (AWD) versions and with a choice of batteries, but there are no plans yet for an Alpine-branded hot version to compete with VW. ID.4 GTX.
