How to Pronounce Renault MINUTE?

Don't laugh, but how is Renault MINUTE pronounced?

Recently, at the local dealer, I asked if they could sort something for me via their Renault MINUTE service, and I pronounced it like minutes in an hour, with the emphasis on the 'i' - but the guy looked blankly at me, paused and replied pronouncing it minUte i.e. how you'd describe something that's very, very small, with the emphasis on the 'u' ('my newt').

I always thought it was MINUTE to describe tasks that can be done in minutes while you wait, but maybe not?

Just curious!
