Renault will continue to produce the supermini after scrappage boosts sales
22 June 2009

The success of scrappage schemes across Europe has led Renault to increase production of its Clio Campus supermini.

The Renault Clio Campus is made at its Flins factory near Paris and production has now been extended to December, a move which will result in an extra 4000 models being built.

Renault had originally planned to shift Campus production to its Novo Mesto factory in Slovenia, but demand for the re-bodied second-generation Clio has remained strong.

The French firm insists the move has been motivated by market conditions and not political motives, despite it receiving a three billion Euro (£2.5billion) state loan in exchange for commitments to maintain manufacturing and employment in France.

Renault sold 4429 Clio Campuses in May and it has sold 29,350 units in the first five months on 2009.
