Après la Libération, Renault devient Régie Nationale. Pierre Lefaucheux est nommé à la tête de l'entreprise. L'heure étant à la reconstruction nationale, la production se concentre d'abord sur les utilitaires. Mais l'idée de la voiture populaire est plus que jamais d'actualité. Une fois dévoilée, la 4 CV s'impose rapidement auprès du public.

L'outil industriel se perfectionne, la production s'accélère. De 200 véhicules par jour en 1938, elle passe à 1 000 en 1955. Les effectifs grimpent à 52 000 personnes. Enfin Renault commence à exporter massivement et installe de nouvelles usines à l'étranger.

// When France is liberated, Renault becomes a national corporation. Pierre Lefaucheux is appointed to run the firm. The most important task is to rebuild the French economy, so the company focuses first and foremost on producing commercial vehicles. However, the idea of a car for ordinary people is very much a topical issue. Once unveiled, the 4 CV quickly becomes a firm favourite with public.

Renault upgrades its production base and accelerates the pace of production. Output increases from 200 vehicles/day in 1938 to 1,000 in 1955. The workforce increases to 52,000. At the same time, Renault starts opening new plants in other countries and exporting vehicles on a large scale.
