As I read it Renault will stop producing combustion engine cars in China. Maybe they'll keep making a small number of electric cars with the seperate eGT joint venture. I think they say they're keeping dealerships, so probably some models may be imported from elsewhere (South Korea/Samsung-Renault). But it's unclear from the press release. They're basically saying "we're shutting down the Dongfeng Renault joint venture and we'll figure the rest out later".

Dongfeng Group plans to potentially use the Dongfeng-Renault factory in Wuhan for its new "H" business unit. The "H" business unit was conceptualized about a year ago to explore opportunities in the high-end, new energy car market. Dongfeng, which is reportedly planning to introduce up to 9 new products under this umbrella, is said to have benchmarked the likes of Hongqi and Tesla for this purpose.

If anybody is wondering about the fate of the electric quintuplets, Renault has said in its press release that eGT will continue.
