PanARMENIAN.Net - The Renault-Nissan alliance has granted a license to Russia's largest car maker AvtoVAZ to produce new types of engines from 2014, Vedomosti daily said on Wednesday, March 21, quoting AvtoVAZ head Igor Komarov.

AvtoVAZ expects engine production will reach 450,000 engines per year by 2017. The Russian company plans to supply other plants of the alliance with engines and sell them to other customers.
