Within Presentations at the 2021 Geneva Motor Show, representatives of the French company Renault spoke about the planned expansion of the number of brand cars produced at the Moscow plant.
The start of production of the new Renault model at the plant in Moscow is scheduled for the end of 2021. What kind of car it will be is not yet reported, but it is known that it will share the platform with the best-selling crossover of the brand in Russia - Renault Duster, as well as the Logan and Nissan Terrano models.
The fact that the novelty intended for the Moscow assembly will have the B0 platform indicates that there is will not be the Kadjar presented in Geneva (after all, this compact crossover is built on a different Alliance platform - CMF-C / D - Common Module Family). Now, in addition to the already named Duster, Logan and Nissan Terrano, Renault Fluence is also being produced in Moscow.
At the end of 2021 we plan to release a new model, which is not yet available. Yes, we will use the B0 platform that we have, - he told the siteBehind the wheelJean-Christophe Kugler, Renault COO for Eurasia. - Will it be a new crossover? It is still too early to speak on this topic. .

Recall that recently the company has reduced prices by 3% for Renault Duster 2021 release.
Starting February 19, 2021, the starting price of the model is 591,000 rubles. Renault explained this by the strengthened ruble, but the decline in demand certainly played a significant role in making this decision. So, at the end of 2021, the French sold 194,531 cars on the Russian market, having lost 7% compared to the previous year. And actually Duster in January 2021 lost the title of the most popular crossover in Russia : having sold only 2,743 copies, he reduced sales by 50% and took the second line of the rating.
As part of anti-crisis measures, the work of the plant in Moscow was suspended from February 16 to March 6 this year.
