Renault has given a first glimpse of its entrance into the one-tonne pick-up marketplace with the unveiling of the Alaskan Concept.

The company has confirmed its Nissan Navara-based model will launch in the UK late next year, and this concept is, according to the French brand, “similar in spirit” and “will feature the same dimensions” as the production version.

There’s no confirmation yet whether the Alaskan name will carry through, though this is a logical presumption, and Renault has also confirmed “a broad range of body types and powertrains will be available”.
