SEOUL, Aug. 29 (Yonhap) -- Renault Samsung Motors Co., the local unit of French automaker Renault S.A., plans to ship its new sports utility vehicle to Latin America and Australia this year, and to Europe next year, company officials said Monday.

Renault Samsung is set to sell the QM6 SUV, a new version of its QM5 SUV, in the country next month, with preorders for the vehicle topping 2,000 units a day.

Renault Samsung unveiled an all-new version of its QM5 SUV at the Beijing auto show in April. The QM5 is being marketed as the Renault Koleos overseas.

Renault Samsung's new SUV will compete with rival models, such as Hyundai Motor Co.'s Santa Fe and Tuscon and Kia Motors Corp.'s Sorento and Sportage in the mid-sized SUV market, which has shown strong growth over the past few years.
