Renault India announced today about reaching a milestone of 8 lakh customers in India. Being a decade old player in the Indian market, Renault has created a liking for itself and a following amongst customers in India. Renault has made significant progress, including a manufacturing facility, a technology centre, and a logistics and design centre in India.
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.”
Despite the challenges faced by the industry owing to the pandemic and supply constraints, 2021 proved to be a remarkable year for Renault. India’s global sales contribution to the Renault brand has been significant among its top five global markets. Renault Kiger, launched by Renault in India in 2021, has already established itself as a B-SUV and has emerged as one of its volume drivers. The Renault Kwid that has recently crossed the 4lakh sales milestone and the Renault Triber awarded with Global NCAP 4-Star Safety Rating continue to garner a positive response in their respective segments.
Renault has designed these cars with strong collaboration from the French and Indian teams, and Renault claims are a true embodiment of the ‘Make in India’ initiative. They are developed and produced in India for the Indian customers first, before being offered to other markets globally. Renault’s goal is to substantially increase its network reach to ensure that customers have an unparalleled association with the brand. The company has grown its network, adding more than 150 facilities in the last two years. Today Renault India also claims to have a widespread presence of 530 sales and more than 530 service touchpoints, including 250+ workshop on wheels (WOW) and WOWLite locations across the country.
