From 1980, the French automaker Renault began producing the Trafic as a light commercial van intended for a range of uses from corporate distribution to the independent builder.
The basic configuration and underpinnings were shared with a number of other vehicles, some, like the Fiat Talento, were almost exactly the same with a different badge; others were the Nissan NV300 and the Mitsubishi Express.
Its first generation lasted a full two decades from 1980 up until 2000, it did however have multiple updates and underwent intensive restyling to keep up to date with emerging vehicle styles.
Over the years, the Trafic became more rounded as much as was possible, mainly towards the front end, where the size of the engine dictated the shape.
Predominantly, the vehicles throughout the 1980s were a four-wheel drive, and had diesel engines paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
In 1989, after the Trafic underwent another minor facelift, the vehicle was picked up by Winnebago Industries, the company made famous by their light and dark brown motor homes (in more modern times, these campers enjoyed a revival due to an appearance on the popular television show Breaking Bad, namely the 1986 Fleetwood Bounder). Winnebago Industries created a small overnight van with quality furnishings, with rear lounge-type seats folding out into beds; and in some cases, an extendable roof.
In 2001, manufacturing moved to the GM Motors Manufacturing Plant in Luton as a result of the joint venture between Opel (Vauxhall), Nissan and Renault. This was to be the Renault to be built within the UK for over 30 years. This was not the only factory to produce the Trafic, parts were also assembled in Barcelona due to an agreement made with Nissan. There were a wide number of configurations available to suit most requirements, the three front seats being the standard or another type was a 9-seat passenger minibus.
