SUV Dacia Duster could be sold in the U.S.

Renault is studying various options to see if it's time to start marketing its low-cost vehicles in North America and Southeast Asia, said Gerard Detourbet, head of the Logan program, quoted by the Wall Street Journal.

Detourbet Gerard said that the way the SUV Dacia Duster will be received in Europe and other markets where the launch will matter more in making decisions related to expansion into new territories. Detourbet says that Renault did not come so far in South East Asia for various reasons, but this will change the future and territories will be covered eventually. The representative said that Renault is considering, and return to the U.S. market, but this is very dependent on the commercial success of Duster's SUV in Europe.
