We continue the implementation of the Renault Brand International game plan 2027. After the reveal of Renault Kardian, we are happy to announce a second brand new product in the upper segment, made in Brasil to be exported to all Latin America” says Luiz Fernando Pedrucci, SVP of Renault Group and CEO of Renault Brand in Latin America.

This new investment at our plant in Brazil results in a total of EUR 850 million since 2021, which is a clear demonstration of our commitment in Brazil”, commented Ricardo Gondo, President of Renault do Brasil.
