According to the results of 2021, Renault will produce at least 300 thousand cars less than the planned level. This was reported to Reuters by three sources close to the leadership of the French brand.

The decline in the production of Renault cars is connected with the same global shortage of chips that swept the world car market. Back in September 2021, the French manufacturer predicted the loss of 220 thousand cars, but the shortage of microcircuits used in almost all nodes forced the production to decrease even more.

“Our calculations are constantly updated, but the deficit will definitely be from 300 to 400 thousand cars. This is about 8 percent of the 3.75 million cars sold by us in the pre-pandemic 2019, ”said one of the agency’s interlocutors.

According to analysts’ forecasts, the “achievement” for Renault will be the reduction in 350 thousand cars. Then the brand will be able to maintain a relatively favorable environment for the 4th quarter. In general, experts say, the automotive industry around the world will lose about 11 million new cars due to a lack of microchips. The shortage came at a very inopportune moment, when manufacturers began to recover from the disruptions caused by the pandemic, and were also actively involved in the development of electric cars.
