Apparently Renault is studying the british market for a possible launch of the Dacia Logan model in 2008, according to an article from Financial Times. Gerard Detourbet, the Renault director in charge with the Dacia Logan brand for emergent markets, has declared to this publication that Renault is analyzing the Great Britain market, one of the largest auto markets, but hasn’t reached a decision yet about Dacia Logan. “If we’re gonna take a decision about this, we’ll enter the market in 2008”, declared Gerard Detourbet.
Financial Times says that if Renault will decide to export Dacia Logan in Great Britain, the cars sold there will probably be made at the Mahindra factories in India, probably due to the right hand drive which is the same.
In 2004, Renault started producing the Dacia Logan model in Romania, destined for emerging markets like East Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. In 2005 the Dacia Logan was also being produced in factories in Morocco, Russia and Columbia, while in 2007 the production will start at the Mahindra factories in India, two factories in Iran and in Brazil. Sold both under the Dacia and Renault brands, the Dacia Logan costs between 7000 euro in India and 10,000 euro in France for the best model.
