Renault Koleos

Auto-sales-statistics-China-Renault_Koleos-SUVSales figures for the Renault Koleos in China.

The Koleos is the second locally produced model for French brand in China, after the Renault Kadjar. Before, the French brand only imported its models in low volumes, most notably the Koleos crossover and Fluence and Latitude sedans from South-Korea and the Captur small crossover from France. The Koleos is the second vehicle built in Renault’s new factory in Wuhan with Joint Venture partner Dongfeng. The factory has an annual capacity for 150.000 units in its first year, with the option to double capacity when sales of the two crossovers exceed expectations.

The Koleos shares the platform, engines and gearbox with the Nissan X-Trail, which is also made in China by a Joint Venture with Dongfeng. That means the option of a 2-liter four-cylinder engine with 150hp/200Nm and front-wheel drive or a 2,5 liter four-cylinder with 186hp/233Nm and optional four-wheel drive, both mated to a CVT gearbox. Dimensions are 4.672/1.843/1.678mm with a wheelbase of 2.705, again similar to the X-Trail. Prices start at 179.800 yuan (€ 24.700,- / US$ 25,900) and top out at 269.800 yuan. This puts it on par with that X-Trail, slightly above the smaller Peugeot 4008, but below the VW Tiguan and the (more powerful) Buick Envision.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.

  1. In Renault official materials I see worldwide 4033 of Koleos cars. Here is stated 4814 only in China. Why is that so?

    • Bart Demandt says:

      Hi ToJa,

      I see the 4.033 as well in the Renault data. The only explanation I can give is that Renault publishes retail sales (but I’m not 100% sure about that) and China publishes wholesale (dealer deliveries).

      • Thx for reply. This sounds reasonable, however difference is much bigger then those 800 units, Koleos is already offered in for example Australia.

        BTW: do you plan to show data of Samsung QM6 near Koleos data? The same as you did for Talisman?

      • Bart Demandt says:

        Hi ToJa,

        I’m aware of that, I’ve seen the new Koleos already on the streets in Dubai and Brazil last November and in Mexico last week, so I agree the difference seems a bit large. Let’s keep an eye on it in the coming months and see how things develop.
        About the Samsung QM6 data: you can find it in the page for Renault Koleos European sales.

Let me know what you think of this article. Thanks!
