This will boost production at their Busan factory by about 80,000 units a year. This year the plant aims to build about 180,000 vehicles for sale in Korea and 60 other countries. Production of the new Rogue is scheduled to start in 2014.

“Adding production in Korea shows a commitment across the Alliance to helping Renault Samsung Motors achieve its targets for cost competitiveness and growth,” said Renault-Nissan Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn. “The Busan announcement represents a unique ‘win-win-win’ for Renault, Nissan and RSM, demonstrating the flexibility and power of the Alliance for all partners -- and I am counting on every RSM employee to contribute to the  successful completion of this project.”
