The Renault-Nissan Alliance will not stop to expand and grow in the world. Already controls to Mitsubishi and you will soon begin to build cars in Iran next to a local partner. However, this expansion will not be there and for the year 2018 wants to start manufacturing cars in Pakistan. To carry out this business venture will count with the help of a local partner, as already done in many other countries.
The idea of manufacturing cars in the asian country comes from the conversations that have kept the Finance minister of Pakistan Ishaq Dar with several senior executives of the Renault-Nissan Alliance in Paris. According to Reuters Pakistan wants that your local market is no longer dominated by firms of japanese origin as Suzuki, Toyota or Honda, and to this end has had discussions with other foreign manufacturers such as Renault-Nissan, Fiat Chrysler Cars or PSA (Peugeot, Citroën and DS).
This initiative is very attractive to manufacturers because Pakistan has some two hundred million of inhabitants and the sales that represent the automotive sector are very scarce. Throughout the year 2015 has just been sold to 180,000 new vehicles and these data could be increased if manufacturers adapt to the tastes of local consumers.
According to Renault are already in talks with local partners Ghandhara and Al Futtaim Groups to develop the commercial network of Renault in Pakistan. In addition, within the agreement would be including a new manufacturing plant located in the city of Ghandara in Karachi. All the preparations should allow Renault is selling in Pakistan early next year to 2018.
The last thing we’ll confirm they are the models which are produced in the asian country, although it is not surprising that some of them belong to the brand Dacia. In addition, they have not yet confirmed the investment to be carried out or the participation that will have every one of the partners in the new company.
