In Korea, the plug-in being launched by Renault Samsung Motors will be a battery-electric version of the Renault Samsung SM3 compact. We do not have any more information about the vehicle. We hope that the company will reveal it soon.

Meanwhile, the Renault-Nissan Alliance has announced that it will invest $160 million to expand the production capacity of its Busan plant to accommodate 80,000 more vehicles per year.

The plant will produce new derivative vehicles in the country and the units produced here would be exported as well. Nissan Rogue crossover will also be produced along with other vehicles at the plant.
