Renault starts the production of Fluence in Malaysia

Gilles Normand, Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Region for the Renault group, and Kuan, CEO de Tan Chong Euro cars, signed an agreement to build Fluence in Malaysia.

This agreement will enable Renault to build its presence and renown not only in Malaysia but also
across the whole of South-East Asia, a region with real opportunities for growth. Malaysia is the third biggest regional economy after Thailand and Indonesia, with growth running at over 5 per cent on average over the past thirty years and living standards that are among the highest in South-East Asia.

The launch of Fluence is the first stage in Renault's drive to step up the pace of growth in Malaysia. Recognised for its strength and reliability Fluence is the Renault group vehicle used to win international markets, particularly in countries where three-box sedans are popular. Other launches are planned in the future for vehicles meeting the core requirements of the local market.

"We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Tan Chong Motors, partner to Nissan, with which Renault has been working for over ten years. This agreement marks the start of a new stage in the development of Renault in Malaysia where our ambition is to establish Renault as the within the top 3 of generalist European car makers by 2018," said Gilles Normand.

"With the Malaysian automotive market now opening its doors more widely to foreign vehicle manufacturers, and after our work with Nissan, we are very pleased to have this agreement with a leading European brand such as Renault," added Kuan.
