That future includes export the Kangoo to new markets in 2022, in addition to Mexico and Colombia; and the short-term arrival of a new platform "Which will have a ratio of more or less two thirds for exports and one third for the local market", as explained by the owner of Renault in Argentina.

The new platform, of which Sibilla preferred not to give more details, would have combustion engines, although it would have the ability to receive in the future a hybrid system no problem.

For 2022, Renault's plans in Argentina include sell 90% of its national cars and as part of this objective, imported vehicles will be replaced by others of national origin.

"That is why the import of Kwid will be temporarily suspended, and a larger model will be offered instead, such as Sandero, which is only 2% more expensive and meets the needs of the segment", said the CEO of the French brand in the country.

In any case, Sibilla clarified that this decision will be temporary: "It is a strategy that will be maintained until the market is regularized and can be complemented with other imports."

Regarding the production of Santa Isabel, Sibilla estimated that in 2022 some 70.000 vehicles, 50.000 from Renault and the rest from Nissan.
