Renault shifts production of the Twizy of Spain to South Korea-twizy

A lot of car for little space – and money. A lot of security. Highest comfort. Functionality with size. All keywords, which describe the Renault Twizy aptly. And he seems to arrive at his fans, not in Europe, but in Korea. Reason enough for the production of Renault Twizy to break down his tents in Valladolid, Spain, to rebuild this in Busan, Korea. Currently, the Nissan Rogue SUV is manufactured, whose production is set in September next year.

The Twizy from Spain is currently exported by Renault Samsung to Korea for the sale. There, the turnover was difficult to increase due to the unfavorable parts supply. Currently the company plans with a production of around 5.000 Twizy a year in Busan. These should then be sold especially in Korea and other parts of Asia.

In 2017, only 853 Twizy vehicles were sold worldwide, 2018 to September was 1.145 copies. The models manufactured in Busan will have higher specifications than European models. The aim is that you can start production on site by March 2019.

According to an employee of Renault Samsung, it is believed that the production of the Twizy will be more efficient in Korea, as 60 percent of cars are sold in Asia. With the Twizy we will produce two electrical models in Busan, which could help Busan to become a turntable for environmentally friendly automotive production. In the Spanish plant, the plug-in hybrid versions of the Megane and / or Captur models can be mounted in the future in the future.
