Renault India & China Production (By Model) : 2015-19

The tardis-like Triber

In the final of the series for Renault Group production 2015-19, two overseas joint venture operations are under the spotlight. Well, more like a pencil torch light to be precise. They are both in the Asian region but otherwise have little in common.

India. This is a tie-up with alliance partner Nissan at a plant in Chennai. I always saw it a more of a Nissan plant but it is a genuine sharing arrangement. The Renault side of the production has the Kwid as its main model, but also the new compact MPV the Triber, which only went on sale in the second half of 2019. It amazingly has three rows of seats within it's diminutive frame. The Duster is sliding downward and the Captur for now looks like its finished.

China. Renault got into a joint venture with Jinbei not long back and the Shengyang entry below from 2018 is what was and is produced through that. The total figure seems to cover quite a few different models with emphasis on light commercial vehicles and electric cars.

Not a common enough site on Chinese roads

Renault also formed a partnership with Dongfeng to assemble Renault cars but that has proved unsuccessful and Renault has now pulled out of that arrangement. Renault should have entered the Chinese market much earlier, before the public had established loyalties to the much longer term entrants.
