Renault and ZAZ, or Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant, plan to produce 10,000 cars this year, rising from a seemingly terminal decline

. Once Ukraine’s biggest car plant, ZAZ stopped car production in 2018. Last September, Renault Group signed an agreement with ZAZ to make cars for the domestic market. In the post-Soviet era, ZAZ production peaked in 2008 with 257,600 cars.
