Renault to shift more Clio production to Turkey

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

French carmaker Renault plans to move more production of its Clio mini to Turkey, company and industry sources told Reuters, in what is likely to be the start of phasing out domestic manufactur­ing of the brand’s biggest seller. The plan extends a shift to Renault’s plant in Bursa, south of Istanbul, that has proved politicall­y sensitive in the past. In 2010, Renault scrapped plans to transfer all Clio production abroad after a showdown

with the French government, its biggest shareholde­r. This time, falling French Clio output will be offset by rising electric car production, blunting its political edge.
