HISTOIRE LATIL
Renault Groupe Renault is a French multinational automobile manufacturer established in 1899. The company produces a range of cars and vans, and in the past has manufactured trucks, tractors, tanks, buses/coaches and autorail vehicles. Renault Trucks is a French commercial truck and military vehicle manufacturer with corporate headquarters at Saint-Priest near Lyon. Originally part of Renault, it has been owned by the Volvo Group since 2001.
From its beginnings in 1978 to 2002, the company was called Renault Industrial Vehicles, from 1992 on officially written as Renault V. I., with either form commonly abbreviated RVI.
In 1956, the company Saviem was formed as a subsidiary of Renault from the combination of Renault's own truck and bus production with the manufacturers Somua and Latil .
From 1957 on, Saviem was also used as the brand name for the trucks and buses produced by the company.
As a result of French industrial policy, in 1975 state-owned Renault also acquired the truck and bus manufacturer Berliet from Citroen (at that time a part of the Michelin corporation). In 1978, Berliet and Saviem were merged to form Renault Vehicules Industriels. Again, the old brand names were retained for two more years while the model lineups gradually were incorporated, until in 1980 they were replaced by the name Renault.Renault Midliner with Club of Four cab, late 1990s modelIn 1971, Saviem became a member of the Euro Truck Development Group or Club of Four, a cooperation between four European truck producers (Saviem, Volvo, DAF and Magirus-Deutz, which soon after became a part of Iveco) for the production of medium-sized trucks. Since 1975 the truck models resulting from this cooperation were built by Saviemand later Renault, even until 2001. They were also sold on the North American market as the Mack Mid-Liner or Manager.

RENAULT R4 - Drivetrain: front-engine FWD - Long-lived built from 1961 to 1992 and utterly simple in some places yet complex in others, this was Renaults first front-wheel-drive car. Quirks included the gearlever sprouting from the dashboard necessary because the transmission was mounted in front of the engine plus a different wheelbase on each side! The six engines available ranged from 603cc to 1108cc, but power stayed between the limits of 23bhp and 34bhp. As well as the saloon, there was also a 4x4 and a beach car known as the Plein Air. Renault used to get the french company SINPAR to transform its cars and light trucks in 4WD. Almost all 4x4 R4s were used by the french Gendarmerie, Fire and forest brigades, army or EDF (electricity) as far too expansive for current end users ! The 4x4 Sinpar system is quite simple and benefits from a non permanent gearbox : 2 levers on floor can engage the transfer box when mud or snow requires it ! strong puller in all terrain conditions. Naw car is a rare 4 wheel drive "original" R4.
In Autumn 1962 "Sinpar" launched an all-terrain light vehicle based on the Renault 4, and after Sinpar itself ceased its activities Renault created a subsidiary of its own, based at Chassieu which produced the modified all-terrain Renault 4 based vehicles. The new business was still called "Sinpar", but now "Sinpar" was an acronym which stood for "Societe Industrielle de Production et d'Adaptations Rhodanienne".
During the later 1960s the business increasingly focused on four-wheel drive conversions for various Renault models, notably the Renault Goelette (the vans mostly being destined for service with the French army) along with the Renault 4, Renault Rodeo, Renault 6 and the Renault 12. Although most of the cars were sold in France, useful volumes were also achieved in the more mountainous regions of Switzerland where, until the arrival in Europe of the Subaru, there was significant customer demand for reasonably priced four wheel drive cars which the larger auto-makers were disinclined to address.
History Berliet was a French manufacturer of automobiles, buses, trucks and other utility vehicles, based in Venissieux, outside of Lyon, France. Founded in 1899, and apart from a five-year period from 1944 to 1949 when it was put into administration sequestre it was in private ownership until 1967 when it then became part of Citroen, and subsequently acquired by Renault in 1974 and merged with Saviem into a new Renault Trucks company in 1978. The Berliet marque was phased out by 1980.
