|The Renault Captur is proving popular|
This group consists of Renault (France), Dacia (Romania) and Samsung (Korea). Romania, Turkey, Morocco and India all had sizable gains in the share they produce. Korea, Slovenia and Iran were the opposite. China is not on the list below. That is a serious omission as volume and profit is to be had there. Europe accounted for 66.6% of the total, South America 18.0%, Asia 7.9% and Africa / Middle East 7.6%. It sits 9th biggest car maker as I interpret it.
|The Dacia Logan MCV|
One thing that stands out for Renault is the acquisition and clever use of Dacia. Without that, Renault would not be in a very good place. The no frills cars they make are popular and are sold under the Renault logo too. The profit margin for a budget brand are good also.
