Both Nissan and Renault have opened their respective offices in India, while sales operations have been resumed at select Nissan and Renault dealerships across the country.
Nissan and Renault have partially resumed their operations in the country. Both carmakers have opened their respective offices and select dealerships across the country in accordance with the regulations of the government and local authorities.
In an official statement, Nissan said that the company has started dispatching its BS6 vehicles from its Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Chennai to its dealerships in green and orange zones across the country. The company’s sales and marketing office in Gurugram has also resumed operations with limited staff.
Nissan’s French partner, Renault, has also resumed operations, as its office and over 194 showrooms and workshops have re-opened. The company says that it is following all safety protocols, and its remaining dealerships are expected to resume sales and service operations in a phased manner. The company has also launched the ‘Welcome Back’ initiative for customers. Like Nissan, Renault has also started dispatching cars from its Chennai unit. Renault says that export of critical ‘Make in India’ parts has also begun from its facilities in Chennai and Pune to select global markets.
While Nissan is all set to launch the 2020 Kicks with an all-new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine, Renault will bring the very same engine in the Duster sometime later this year. The Duster 1.3 petrol was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year in February. However, the next launch by Renault will be the Triber AMT, which was also revealed at the Auto Expo 2020.
