PARIS (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault (RENA.PA) said on Friday its South Korean subsidiary RSM would suspend production at its Busan site for four days from Feb. 11 due to supply chain disruptions in China, where a virus epidemic has hit industrial activity.
She said Renault and its alliance partner Nissan (7201.T) were working closely on the supply disruptions as the Busan unit produces the Nissan Rogue SUV.
Renault extended on Monday the shutdown at its factory in China’s Wuhan until Feb. 13, in line with the Chinese government’s guidance following the coronavirus outbreak.
