Renault-Nissan Tangier plant inaugurates second production line; 340K vehicles per year, largest in Africa
The Renault-Nissan Tangier plant inaugurated its second production line. The new line will increase the site’s output capacity to 340,000 vehicles a year, starting in 2014. It required an investment of €400 million and will produce Dacia Sandero and Dacia Sandero Stepway, two leading models in the Dacia range.
The result of a public-private partnership between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Renault group, the second line makes the plant the largest in Africa. The plant itself was inaugurated on 9 February 2012.
The Renault-Nissan Tangier plant is a société anonyme (limited company) owned 52.4% by the Renault group and 47.6% by Caisse de Dépôts et de Gestion (CDG).
