Zapping Auto Moto Renault Rafale: first contact with the large SUV cut from the Losange

This column is all the more interesting as it is published while the project is strongly contested. Major clearing work has been suspended since Tuesday October 10 until Friday October 13. The objective is to organize a meeting between the project stakeholders and “concerned” associations. To be continued…
