VW Group and Renault-Nissan have a combined 41 vehicle assembly plants in Europe and Russia, according to data from Automotive News Europe.
Said another way, the two automakers account for more than 40 percent of all the car factories operating on a land mass that stretches from Setubal, Portugal, in the west more than halfway around the world to Vladivostok, Russia, in the east.
Renault-Nissan increased its footprint this year by taking full control of Russia's AvtoVAZ and its massive factory in Togliatti.
VW Group also has grow through acquisitions over the past few years by absorbing Porsche's plants in Zuffenhausen and Leipzig, Germany, as well as the former Karmann factory in Osnabrueck, Germany. In addition, VW recently announced plans for a new plant. The Crafter will be produced in Wrzesnia, Poland, starting in 2016.
