Renault's Revenue Rises in 1st Quarter, Confirms 2017 Targets
Renault SA said Thursday that its revenue rose by a quarter as the French car maker increased car sales and consolidated results for the first time from a Russian unit.
Revenue for the three months to the end of March climbed to 13.13 billion euros ($14.27 billion) from 10.49 billion euros in the same period last year. Car sales in the quarter advanced 16% to 873,678 vehicles.
Stripping out Autovaz, revenue rose about 20%.
