French automobile concern Renault plans to deliver cars to Azerbaijan from Russia.
Renault has already started to deliver cars to Kyrgyzstan from Russia. Meanwhile, the company wants to expand opportunities to localize the production thanks to the access to new markets of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), while car sales in Russia decrease against the background of the economic crisis.
The first export Renault vehicles were delivered to Kyrgyz market after the country’s full membership in the Eurasian Economic Union came into effect in August. Renault Russia, which has been supplying cars to near foreign countries since 2010, currently exports 12% of total volume of Russia-produced Renault cars.
Renault Russia exports such car models as Renault Logan, Renault Sandero, Renault Sandero Stepway, Renault Duster and Renault Captur. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
