Six months after the start of its local production in the Renault factory located in Oued Tlélat, Algerian newspaper Le Soir d’Algérie reports the Renault Symbol is the best-selling vehicle in the country in May with sales up 102% year-on-year to 1.817 deliveries in a market down 34%. This means the Symbol ‘‘Dernaha djazaïria’’ (made in Algeria) dislodged its lower-end twin the Dacia Logan, #1 overall in Algeria in 2013 and 2014. Three versions are now available in the country: Essentielle (launched this month), Extrême and Exception. The Extrême version, equipped with GPS navigation, accounts for almost half of Symbol sales.
