Post recent success of the Duster, the carmaker plans to sell around 30,000 cars this year.
Renault India currently stands 13th on the list of India’s top carmakers and with just 0.24% market share, the company is well aware that there is a big ladder to climb. Now with the success of their latest launch the Duster, Renault is steadily becoming a recognizable brand to a wider slice of the Indian market. In keeping with the growth, Renault India’s MD Marc Nassif has said that the company plans to hit sales of 1 lakh cars by 2013-14.
"Renault India has a great product plan. The challenge will be to scale up the organisation, dealerships and deliver 1,00,000 vehicles a year. India needs to be among the top 10 markets for Renault by 2013," Marc Nassif said.
In India, the French carmaker didn’t quite have the best of starts and it’s been a tough ride so far as all their earlier offerings; namely the Koleos, the Fluence and the Pulse have put up a rather mediocre performance. But with the launch of Duster and the upcoming C segment sedan, the Scala; Nassif is hoping for a far better run this year with sales of 30,000 units planned for the current year. "The last few months have been intense - preparing for the launch, expanding operations and getting the logistics and the right product in place," he added.
