French carmaker Renault (RENA.PA) is to manufacture two new engines out of its Romanian and Spanish factories but this will not destroy any jobs in France, a spokesman for the group said on Friday.
French car manufacturer Renault's eco2 seal of environmental performance is shown at the company's exhibition stand during the first media day of the 80th Geneva Car Show at the Palexpo in Geneva March 2, 2010.
An earlier report in daily Liberation said the production of a low-fuel-consumption engine in Romania would lead to between 200 to 400 job losses in a factory in Douvrin, northern France.

Referring to statements by Renault earlier this year that there would be no site closures, no headcount reduction, no voluntary departure plan in France, the spokesman said: "This especially applies to Douvrin."
In addition to the H4 low-fuel-consumption engine, to be manufactured in Romania, the new H5 engine will be produced out of Spain, the spokesman said.
