    Tangier - Morocco can produce high quality vehicles, with a content rate of 60%, said Tuesday minister of Industry, Trade and the Green and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy.

    Speaking in Tangier at the end of the official launch of the two new vehicles of the Renault brand, Nouvel Express and Nouvel Express Van, Elalamy said that the automotive sector’s exports in 2019 totalled 80 billion dirhams and nearly the same amount in 2020 despite the pandemic, noting that the automotive sector is Morocco's leading export sector.

    'It is also the first sector in terms of added value', he said, expressing the wish that other sectors would reach a high added value, since it is the objective of the industrialization of Morocco, as sought by HM King Mohammed VI.

    The minister highlighted the transformation underwent at the Renault plant in Tangier, specifying that it is a 4.0 plant with robots that perform 40% of the necessary welding, in order to meet the precision and the superior quality required.

    This factory manufactured Dacia vehicles, which had to be changed, the minister explained, adding that despite the pandemic, it was possible to find the technicians necessary to be able to support the transfer of knowledge, which made it possible to have Moroccan technicians and engineers who are running these robots.

    “Despite the in-depth transformation of this plant, Renault has now exceeded 9,100 employees,” he pointed out.

    Groupe Renault Maroc has officially unveiled the two new vehicles of the Renault brand, namely Nouvel Express and Nouvel Express Van, produced at the Tangier plant, during a ceremony attended by the ambassador of France to Morocco, Hélène Le Gal, the general manager of the group, Marc Nassif, the general manager of the Renault plant in Tangier, Mohamed Bachiri, and the general manager of the Renault brand in Morocco, Mohamed Bennani.
