The Dacia Logan will be launched in Argentina and Brazil in May and June 2007, according to the Renault Commitment 2009 plan in South America. The Dacia Logan became available in South America two years ago when it was launched in Columbia, Venezuela and Ecuador.
In Argentina, the Dacia Logan will be an addition to the Laguna II, Scenic I, Megane I and II, Clio II and Master. Renault has a factory in Argentina, in the city of Cordoba.
The Dacia Logan, under the Renault name, is the third car to be launched by the french company in Brazil, after the new Megane and the Megane Grand Tour. The Dacia Logan will be for the first time equipped with an engine that uses bioethanol as fuel. At first, 80% of the parts for the Dacia Logan will be made in Brazil, increasing to 90% by 2009. Another three models will be launched in Brazil by Renault, with the goal of doubling the number of sales in this country.
Renault will produce the Dacia Logan in the Ayrton Senna complex from Curitiba (Brazil). The production capacity of the complex is 110.000 Dacia Logan per year. The Dacia Logan made in Brazil will be destined both for the local market and Argentina and Mexico.
