Until now, Renault has cumulatively sold 8 lakh cars in India and just recently, the French carmaker’s exports crossed the 1 lakh unit mark.

The  Renault Duster was a runaway success when the compact SUV made a debut in India. The Duster laid the foundation for the French carmaker almost a decade ago and now Renault India has reported a cumulative sales of 8 lakh units. Currently, the demand for the Duster has phased off, however, Kiger, which is a relatively smaller sub-four-metre crossover SUV, has gained popularity. The Kwid which has was positioned in the frugal affordable hatchback segment recently crossed the 4 lakh sales mark. Renault further adds that the Triber is continuing to garner a positive response.

Sometime last month, Renault also announced that the firm has crossed the 1 lakh exports mark. Renault exports the Kiger, Triber and Kwid to 14 countries across SAARC, Asia Pacific, Indian Oceanic Region, South Africa and East Africa. The exports are produced at Renault's facility in Oragadam which was set up in 2012. The Duster was the first SUV which exported from the plant.

Despite the semi-conductor shortage around the globe, in terms of overall sales, Renault India’s contribution to the firm has been substantial which has made India, one of the top five global markets for the French carmaker.

Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations said, ‘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’
