Nine new vehicles will be assigned to French factories, which would lead the Losange to produce more than 700,000 vehicles per year in France.

The France 2030 plan presented this Tuesday by Emmanuel Macron provides in particular that two million hybrid and electric vehicles will be produced in French factories by 2030.

Upmarket

In 2019, Renault produced 686,000 vehicles in France but since then, Luca de Meo, the group's CEO, has implemented an upmarket strategy intended to increase the margins of the manufacturer long appreciated for its economical but unprofitable vehicles. .

In Île-de-France, Renault will shed 200,000 m² of offices and halve its real estate footprint at tertiary sites (Boulogne, Plessis Robinson, etc.)

"in order to better adapt it to its real needs, from 450,000 m² to 250,000 m² by 2025 ”

.

The trade unions, however, have not yet given the green light to these commitments which

"remain conditional on the conclusion of a global agreement including in particular a change in the organization of working time",

specifies the group's press release.
