On July 10, 2017, Renault is celebrating the one millionth vehicle built by the Tangier plant. Marking the event, Jean-Philippe Hermine talked about the "zero CO2 emission" and "zero industrial effluents" strategy put in place by the Group at this site.
Setting its sights on the future, Renault is adapting its production system to address the new challenges facing the automotive industry. People are at the heart of Renault's plant of the future, men and women, from operators to customers. The 4.0 revolution is driving connected, agile and competitive manufacturing.
Production of the brand new Nissan Micra started up at Renault’s Flins and Le Mans plants a few days ago. Micra is the first Nissan passenger car to be made at a Renault facility, an arrangement that proves the competitive performance of Renault’s production facilities in France and the synergies operating across the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
Last week, Renault inaugurated 40 hectares (equal to 60 soccer pitches) of photovoltaic panels simultaneously at six of its French production sites. The initiative further confirms Renault’s environmental commitment and is also an innovative way of protecting new vehicles before they leave plants.
