Renault Cars India Hits 8 Lakh Sales Milestone Since Debut
French carmaker Renault has announced that it has crossed the 8 lakh cumulative sales milestone in India since its debut in 2011. Interestingly, the Renault Kwid accounts for over 50 percent of the company’s overall sales.
Currently, Renault has four cars in its portfolio: Kwid (entry-level cross hatchback), Triber (sub-4m cross-MPV), Kiger (sub-4m SUV), and the Duster (compact SUV). The 7-seater Triber is the safest offering from Renault in India with a 4-star safety rating in the NCAP crash test. And since the Kiger is also based on the same CMF-A+ platform as the Triber and Nissan Magnite, the automaker expects a similar 4-star safety rating for the sub-4m SUV as well.
Speaking of the dealer network, the manufacturer has 530 sales and over 530 service touchpoints across the nation, including more than 250 Workshops on Wheels (mobile workshops).
Commenting on the achievement, Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said –
We are extremely delighted to have crossed the 8 Lakh sales milestone in India. This has been a phenomenal journey and I would like to thank all our customers, dealers, suppliers, employees, manufacturing & engineering teams for their immense support and belief in the brand. Over the last few years, we have established a strong foundation in India. Together with a strong product strategy, Renault has been continuously undertaking strategic measures across all key business dimensions to offer a seamless brand ownership experience to its customers. All these have scripted Renault’s growth story in India.
In the other news, Renault is gearing up to launch the next-generation Duster in India, which is likely to be arrived by the end of this year.
