Renault launches Bluecar production
This month, Groupe Renault’s Dieppe plant in northern France begins assembly of the Bluecar all-electric city car’.
Groupe Bolloré is phasing in the assembly of the Bluecar by Renault made previously only in Italy.
At Dieppe, the agreement is warmly welcomed for its positive impact on employment and as a sign of recognition of the plant's capabilities and know-how.
The Dieppe plant, which dates back to May 1969, specializes in small production runs. It currently makes Clio Renaultsport 200 EDC as well as single-seat competition cars.
A dedicated assembly shop has been set aside within the plant to handle the work on Bluecar, and will eventually employ 30 people. This provides Bolloré with access to a modern production system tailored to its needs.
said Laurent Delannay, Renault Groupe, Dieppe director.
