Renault Korea Motors exhibited SM6 vehicles that contain the meaning of Korea and France at the Bastille Day event, also called the anniversary of the French Revolution.
The 2022 Bastille Day event, hosted by the French-Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) on Sebit Island in Banpo Hangang Park, Seoul on July 14, was attended by about 500 people, including David-Pierre Jalicon, chairman of the Korea-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry and CEO Stéphane Deblaise of Renault Korea Motors.
At the event, Renault Korea Motors exhibited a special SM6 TCe 300 model with three colors of blue, white, and red, which symbolize France, on the hood of the vehicle, under the theme of SM6 motorized by Alpine.
The SM6 TCe 300 is equally equipped with a 1.8 turbo gasoline engine that delivers the exceptional acceleration force and rich traction power of the Alpine A110.
The development of the 1.8 turbo gasoline engine, the heart of the Alpine A110, was led by domestic researchers at Renault Korea Motors and is produced at the Busan plant and provided to the Alpine.
Renault Group's Alpine is France's leading high-performance vehicle brand, which has achieved outstanding results in various motor sports events since its establishment in 1955.
Alpin, who announced its revival as a new A110 model in 2018 after a temporary hiatus, has taken over Renault Group's Formula 1 (F1) team baton and has been playing in F1 games as a representative team of France since 2021.
Renault Korea Motors also introduced a 2D typhoon logo with three colors of the French flag. The three-colored typhoon logo attracted the attention of participants at the Bastille Day event with a shape that seemed to express the French flag and the Korean national flag in harmony.
