Dongfeng Renault's test track put into use in China

Updated 2017-09-22 14:30:54 Xinhua

Sino-French joint venture Dongfeng Renault Automotive Company (DRAC) has completed the first phase of construction of its research and development center, said the company on Thursday.

The center's test track, comprising over 40 kinds of road surfaces, went into use on Thursday in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province. It covers an area of 44,000 square meters and cost around 30 million yuan (about 4.5 million U.S. dollars).

The research and development center has become the "intelligent core" of product localization, according to Weng Yunzhong, executive vice president of DRAC.

"The track is not a duplication of the Renault test track. We have built road surfaces which reflect China's on-real road situation, so that we can examine performance for the China market," said Jacques Foulquier, vice president of DRAC.
