Unveiled at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, the new Trafic SpaceNomad will appear in the Renault model catalog in early 2022. After Switzerland, the car will appear on the markets of five more European countries.
New Renault Trafic SpaceNomad
Motorhomes, which have recently been gaining popularity, have become indispensable in post-quarantine times. The flexibility of this mode of transport facilitates travel even under current health restrictions and offers users total freedom.
After a successful debut in the Swiss market in 2020, the Renault brand has decided to expand SpaceNomad sales in Europe to other countries: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark and France. The motorhome, equipped by Pilot and manufactured at the New Trafic plant in Sandouville, France, will go on sale through the Renault network in early 2022. It will be available in two lengths, as a 4- or 5-seat version, with a wide range of engines ranging from 110 to 170 hp. The new Trafic SpaceNomad is adapted to the different purposes and needs of customers seeking freedom and carefree travel.
“Renault's goal is to expand the range of motorhomes in the European market, which has been growing dynamically for 10 years. After a successful debut in Switzerland, the new Trafic SpaceNomad will go to lovers of freedom to travel to other countries.” — Thierry Plantegenest, Global Commercial Director for Renault and Director of Commercial Vehicles for Renault.

He is not afraid of extreme weather conditions, because he is effectively insulated, lit and heated (2000 W) and equipped with sun blinds.
Design, storage and security
The new Trafic SpaceNomad has a more expressive appearance. The horizontally positioned hood and vertical grille give the impression of more power. It also has full LED headlights and an updated C-shaped lighting system. In the interior, at the front of the cabin, attention is drawn to the upgraded instrument panel with storage space up to 81.8 liters, which puts the car at the forefront of this segment. The design is also richer: chrome inserts, diamond-shine wheels, metallic paints (including the unique Carmin Red color). To give the driver more peace of mind while driving, the car has a number of new driving assistance systems such as active emergency braking, lane keeping assist, driver fatigue detection and blind spot monitoring.
Technologies thanks to which nomadism does not mean cutting oneself off from the world
The new SpaceNomad has a number of on-board systems such as an 8-inch touchscreen or an inductive smartphone charger. It also features Renault's latest EASY LINK multimedia system with built-in navigation and smartphone connectivity via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
