Novo mesto, 03 February (STA) - Revoz, the Slovenian assembly plant of French car maker Renault, will produce the Wind, a new two-seater roadster that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 2 March, Revoz told STA Wednesday.
The Wind, formerly codenamed X33, will be produced in Novo mesto with the help of a EUR 14m subsidy that the Slovenian government granted Revoz last year.
The car will largely be assembled on production lines currently used for the Clio supermini and Twingo city car. Revoz has already hired an extra 50 workers.
Several prototypes have already been completed and serial production is set to start in a few months, according to Revoz.
Revoz would not disclose the planned production figures but it said its current capacities allow for a maximum output of 20,000 Winds.
Last year Revoz produced 212,680 cars, a record for the plant.
