“Renault Group achieved again a strong performance in the third quarter with total revenue increasing by 13.8% at constant exchange rates. We have entered the last quarter with confidence and confirm the improvement of our profitability in the second half of the year and beyond, driven by our product offensive, along with the benefits of our cost reduction program and our disciplined commercial policy focused on value.

In the meantime, we are moving fast forward on all our Revolution projects and this quarter was very active. We officially launched Horse and signed the JV agreement with Geely. Ampere carve-out will occur in November and we will present in detail its strategy during a Capital Markets Day on November 15th. We also announced the Flexis Project together with Volvo Group and CMA CGM, a true game changer to tackle the challenges of electrifying LCVs in the urban logistics sector. We are progressively building our next-gen automotive company.

Finally, following the signature of the Alliance definitive agreements in July, we confirm that the completion of the transaction is expected by the end of the year, as planned. This will create additional value through common operational projects and give Renault Group the opportunity to optimally reallocate part of its capital. said Thierry Piéton, Chief Financial Officer of Renault Group.
