Renault is in a development phase and fully committed to the Middle East Region. Renault which is combining the best ingredients for its customers, owning more than 43% of Nissan Group but also more than 80% of Renault Samsung Motors, is finally a great combination of French touch, Japanese technology and Korean know-how. That's why Renault plays the difference among the other competitors”.
