Carmaker Renault unveils record sales

- AFP, PARIS

Jan 19, 2017-Renault on Tuesday reported a 13-percent surge in global sales last year and assured investors it was taking the emissions scandal swirling around it “with the upmost seriousness”.

The French automaker put its sales success down to buoyant markets in Europe, India and, increasingly, Iran.
