What does Flins do ?
Founded in 1952, Flins is Renault's oldest French bodywork-assembly plant. It conducts the pressing, body assembly, paintwork and final assembly of vehicles prior to their distribution across the Renault network. Dedicated to the production of Clio III in recent years, the site began building Clio IV and ZOE, the all-electric city car, in 2012. Flins also produces Clio R.S. bodies, assembled at the Dieppe plant, and spare parts.
Other activities at the Flins site:
- the Global Training Center (GTC), providing training in vehicle production activities;
- a Renault TECH workshop building converted vehicles;
the DPBS, the special requirements department, whose role includes overseeing vehicles required by the press and for motor shows;
- Renault Classic, which restores vintage vehicles and houses the 730 vehicles of the Renault Collection in its 12,000 m² storage area.
A heritage spanning 60 years, with more than 17 million vehicles built
Since opening in 1952, the Flins site has built almost twenty different models, from Juvaquatre to Clio. Many of the brand's emblematic models were born here, including the 4CV (1952), Dauphine (1956), Renault 4 (1961), Renault 5 (1972), and first-generation Twingo (1993). In 2010, the Flins site celebrated the production of its 17 millionth vehicle: a Clio Dynamique model.
