The cost of a new Renault in Australia is set to surge for the second time in four months.

Effective from 1 July 2022, the entire local line-up will climb again by between $100 and $2210 (full list below).



The average new rise equates to $1270 – or approximately 3.0 per cent on a $40,000 model.

“Shipping costs and an increase in the price of raw materials” forced the decision, according to Renault executive Glen Sealey.



Many manufacturers have increased prices over the past 18 months, in the wake of supply disruptions.

In 2021 Renault reported 7099 cars as sold in Australia, up slightly from 6904 during 2020.
