Renault has presented the Initiale Paris concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Its design gives us a preview of the next-generation Espace’s design. However, it won’t be offered in the UK because of the poor sales of large MPVs in this market. The concept is believed to be very similar to the final Espace production design.

The concept’s roofline is lower. Its dimensions are slimmer and its ride height is slightly raised. The goal of Renault is to be more competitive against SUVs, which have taken some of the market share away from the large MPVs.

In an Autocar interview, Renault design chief Laurens van den Acker said that the silhouette has been redesigned to offer a “more premium expression” and to raise the status of the range-topping model’s design. Renault designed the outgoing Espace to be spacious and have a light interior with a lot of headroom and a big glasshouse.

Renault has scrapped a project to build a luxury car based on the Mercedes E-class platform. Renault had wanted to sell this car for its new 'Initiale Paris' luxury sub-brand and with a starting price of £40,000. Last week, Renault CEO Carlos Tavares said that Renault had not yet come up with a business model with a tie-up with Mercedes that is likely to succeed.

However, he said that Renault will continue to pursue partnering with Mercedes for luxury vehicles. When Tavares was interviewed by Autocar at the recently held Geneva motor show, he said that it will take the initial steps to launching the Initiale Paris luxury brand next year, even if an E-class-based car wasn’t anymore being developed as its ‘halo’ model.

Initiale Paris will take inspiration from how much of an expert the French are on luxury goods. Initially, it will be launched as a trim level for current models. The first to arrive will be the Clio in 2014. This will be followed by the Espace. After a series of new models get launched and if they’re successful, this will lead to the creation of a sub-brand.

Renault’s exterior design chief Anthony Lo said that the success of its luxury Initiale Paris sub-brand relies on being able to give a clearly engineered message that it is an alternative to German premium makers. The senior Renault designer said that the company is presently in the digital development phase of these models under the Initiale Paris sub-brand at the Renault design studios.

Renault chief Carlos Tavares has been very vocal about this goal to make this sub-brand successful. Lo said that they’re considering numerous concepts and that its focus is to “create what our message will be for this brand in 20 years time.” He explained that its cars have to be created to follow this message and not the other way around; otherwise he thinks that it won’t be “believable.”

Lo said that the French luxury goods are admired in booming markets like China but when it comes to luxury cars, the buyers will select a German one over a French one. This is why he thinks that it may be advisable for Renault to work together with a luxury French fashion brand to make a car.

Renault is thinking about launching a new premium brand, which is named ‘Initiale Paris’. If this plan proceeds, the automaker will then have to build its business through four marques, using Dacia as a value brand. French newspaper Les Echos said that Renault as the mainstream brand and Initiale Paris and Alpine as niche premium and sporting brands.

This move may lead to the creation of Citroën’s successful DS sub-brand and would give Renault an opportunity to ride on the success of French premium luxury goods in the big Chinese market. Chief operating officer Carlos Tavares said that a decision on the new plan will be made towards the end of the year. Renault first used the ‘Initiale’ name by Renault for a 1995 luxury concept car.

This paved the way to Renault’s ill-fated attempt to launch itself upmarket at the turn of the century, a move that began with the Avantime and the unsuccessful Vel Satis. Early this year Tavares was quoted as saying that Renault’s premium car would be based on a Mercedes E-class platform and will have a Renault-designed body and interior.
