The Tangiers plant, one of the pillars of the Renault Group's industrial system, will start manufacturing the Dacia Jogger vehicle in the second quarter of 2024. The announcement was made at a press conference held today in the presence of Mr. Ryad Mezzour, Minister of Industry and Trade, Mr. Denis Le Vot, CEO of the Dacia brand, and Mr. Mohamed Bachiri, CEO of Renault Group Morocco. 

This new project reinforces the group's confidence in the national industrial platform and confirms the introduction of electrification technologies announced in June 2021 during the renewal of agreements aimed at consolidating the Renault Group's ecosystem in Morocco.

Underlining the Renault Group's role as a locomotive of the automotive sector in Morocco, Mr. Mezzour stated on this occasion: "Under the enlightened vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the automotive industry has been transformed into a real lever of growth and industrial acceleration for the Kingdom, and today's announcement marks a turning point in this evolution". The Tangier plant will be crowned by a new industrial project that will integrate for the first time in Morocco the production of a hybrid model and thus contribute to the opening of the automotive ecosystem to new areas of high technological value and high impact for Moroccan skills. He added that "this project reinforces the Kingdom's industrial ambition to succeed in the transition to electrification and sustainable mobility and to position itself as the most competitive automotive hub in the world".

Launching in March 2022 in Europe, Jogger is Dacia's first C-segment model and reinvents the concept of the affordable family car. A real success, this versatile and robust model with up to seven seats is available with petrol, LPG* and diesel engines and, for the first time in the Dacia range, a hybrid engine.

The Jogger HYBRID 140 incorporates technology that has been widely proven within the Renault Group thanks to the development of a true multi-mode hybrid engine rather than a simple electrified combustion engine. 

Production of the Jogger, and in particular the HYBRID 140 version, at the Tangier plant will be carried out on line 2 of the industrial site, which will incorporate a dedicated process for hybrid technology, with a production capacity of up to 120,000 vehicles per year. This industrialisation will be accompanied by an adapted robotisation project, with some thirty robots in the sheet metal and assembly departments.

A specific programme to support the development of the skills of the plant's employees will be put in place. The teams in Tangiers will benefit from technical training in new areas of expertise, such as hybrid technology and the electronics associated with this new technology. In total, nearly 6,000 hours of training will be given to 550 employees. 

The launch of production of the first hybrid vehicle on the Tangiers production lines illustrates the attractiveness of the Moroccan industrial platform. This project, led by teams of Moroccan engineers, will give it a strong new competitive advantage.

"Morocco plays an extremely important role for us and the Tangier plant is a pillar in the industrial configuration of the Dacia brand and the Renault Group. The production of the Jogger at the Tangier plant will bring additional expertise and a significant increase in the skills of all employees. The Tangier plant has proven its industrial efficiency and this new model will reinforce and enrich the success story of the Dacia brand in Morocco". Denis LE VOT, Dacia CEO 

Equipped with the best world standards and a symbol of carbon neutrality without industrial waste, the Tangier plant has continued to evolve and consolidate its status as a 4.0 plant to make its industrial tool more technological and efficient. The Tangiers plant is one of the pillars of the Renault Group's industrial strategy and of the Dacia brand. It produces Dacia Sandero, the first vehicle sold to private individuals in Europe since 2017.


"Today, the automotive industry is at the heart of the national economy and Morocco is an important industrial platform for the Group, whose production represents 17% of Renault Group sales worldwide. This new industrial project for a hybrid vehicle, a first in the national automotive industry, marks a new stage in Moroccan manufacturing and reinforces our role as a driving force in the national automotive sector". Mohamed BACHIRI, Managing Director, Renault Group Morocco.
