Renault Korea Motors (RKM) to Manufacture Polestar 4 from 2025

Starting from the second half of 2025, the Polestar 4 will undergo production at the Renault Korea Motors (RKM) plant in Busan, South Korea. This plant, previously recognized as Renault Samsung Motors, was initially established as a collaboration between Samsung and Renault.

Why did they select South Korea when Polestar already has manufacturing facilities in China and the United States? – Busan provides strategic access to export ports, especially towards North America, which is Polestar’s key market.

Renewal Initiatives for the Renault Factory in Korea

As part of this partnership, Renault is also gearing up to introduce two new SUV models in South Korea, both of which will leverage the technical foundation from Geely.

This collaboration presents a significant opportunity for Renault to revitalize the operations of its factory. The sales of models produced at this plant witnessed a decline in the first half of 2023, leading to a direct impact on production.

The forthcoming inclusion of the Polestar 4 in its production lines will enable Renault to maximize the utilization of its infrastructure while expanding its lineup of electric vehicles in partnership with Geely.
