Located in the north of Spain, the Valladolid plant was chosen by the French brand to industrialize the Renault Captur e-Tech plug-in Hybrid.
At Renault, 2020 will be the year of the hybrid. While it chose the Bursa plant in Turkey to produce the hybrid version of its Clio, the diamond brand selected the Spanish Valladolid plant for the production of its first plug-in hybrid model: the Renault Captur e -Tech Plug-in. A choice that is not really a surprise since the Spanish factory has been assembling the classic versions of the Captur since 2013.
According to the Spanish daily El Mundo, the factory will start production of the model as soon as activity resumes, suspended for a few weeks due to the epidemic of Coronavirus.
Revealed at the start of the year at the Brussels Motor Show, the Renault Captur e-Tech Plug-in develops up to 160 horsepower. Equipped with a 9.8 kWh battery, it allows approximately 50 kilometers of autonomy in electric mode. In France, the Captur plug-in hybrid is sold from € 33,700. Originally scheduled for delivery, deliveries of the model will likely be delayed by a few weeks until the factory is fully back on track.
