Production of the new Twingo mini has started alongside Clio II assembly at Renault’s Novo Mesto plant in Slovenia following investment of €400 million. To manufacture the new model alongside Clio II, 700 people were hired, taking the workforce to nearly 3,000. All the assembly operators were trained an average 70 hours on how to assemble the new vehicle. Running on three shifts from May, the plant’s maximum output capacity is 210,000 vehicles a year, Twingo and Clio II combined.
Renault says profitability targets for the Twingo project have been met notably through the use of carry-over; part of the running gear of the Clio II was used for the new Twingo, cutting outlay on the new car by about 25% compared to the Clio III. The new Twingo goes to market on June 15 in France, Italy and Slovenia and in September for the rest of Europe, including, unlike the first Twingo, the UK in right-hand drive.
