- Renault Retail Group (RRG) is planning to resize its business activities in France.
- The project will involve the sale of ten dealerships to reliable and robust purchasers, safeguarding jobs.
- The project will enable RRG to pursue its recovery and optimize future investments.
Paris, February 27, 2020 – Against a backdrop of a deep-seated transformation in the automotive market and constantly evolving customer needs, Renault Retail Group (RRG) presented its project to change scope between now and 2024 to the Central Social and Economic Committee (CSEC) on February 27.
To ensure sustainable and profitable growth, RRG’s project responds to three key issues:
- Prepare for the future by adapting to new consumer behavior, notably the digitalization of the customer journey,
- Adapt its business scope to concentrate investments and support business growth,
- Safeguard jobs and the representativeness of Groupe Renault brands in France.
In France, the project comprises the disposal of ten dealerships and the property sale of RRG’s Grenelle site in Paris. With support from Renault’s Market Area, France, the group has identified reliable and robust buyers (already marketing the group’s brands) enabling the continuation of business activity and the protection of jobs.
