BRAZIL: Renault plant to produce Megane saloon
The saloon is also assembled in Renault's Cordoba factory in Argentina.
Gazeta Mercantil said that Renault is negotiating with suppliers for the Brazilian-built
saloon which will be built at its plant in São José dos Pinhais,
in the southern state of Parana. Production should begin by the end of the year.
This will be the fourth Renault vehicle launched in Brazil in 2001 as part
of its ambitious expansion plans. An updated Scenic was launched recently.
The Brazilian Megane saloon will compete with General Motors' Opel-designed
Chevrolet Astra and Vectra models, the Fiat Brava and Marea, the Volkswagen
Polo and the Ford Focus, Gazeta Mercantil said.
