The Renault Vel Satis was launched at the 2001 Geneva Motorshow to replace the executive Safrane saloon. It was previously revealed as a concept car in 1998, at the Paris Motor Show.
Renault’s flagship vehicle, and used by the French president until 2009, the name Vel Satis is a composite of elements of the words Velocity and Satisfaction. The Vel Satis was the first Renault model offered with Adaptive cruise control (ACC).
The Vel Satis shared its platform with the Laguna and Espace IV and was produced on the same assembly line in Sandouville, France. It was sold in the UK between 2001 and 2005.
