French Cars Fail Tests in China
China has stopped importing several French-made models of Renault cars, after a safety watchdog said it had found “safety problems”.
A Renault spokesperson said problems had occurred in transport and storage but not the manufacturing of some cars.
The ban was announced three days after honorary citizenship of Paris was given to the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.
