Renault India aims for a 5 percent market share by 2016
Renault India Pvt Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Renault SAS France, has a lineup of 5 models which includes the Fluence sedan, Koleos SUV, Pulse compact car, Duster SUV and Scala sedan in India. With these, they have a market share of 2.6% (Mar 2014). Now, with two new launches in 2015, the company aims to increase market share to 5% in the next two years.
Renault India, which recently saw sales of Duster touch 1 lakh mark, has seen increased demand in South India. The company aims to launch new dealerships all across Kerala, with a new dealership opened at Kottayam recently. Renault India dealerships count in the state of Kerala is slated to reach 12 by December 2015 while total dealerships across India will be taken upto 175 by the end of this year.
Though the company has plans in place, their sales have been dismal post Q1 2014. In July 2014, the company posted their lowest ever monthly sales in two years. Of their five cars on offer, only Duster is generating sales. Last month, Renault India sold 2,821 units of Duster, 10 units of Fluence, 2 units of Koleos, 93 units of Pulse and 89 units of Scala.
With the upcoming Onam festival in Kerala round the corner, the company is stepping up advertisement campaigns in order to increase sales. Recently, they introduced a campaign in which 5 Renault Dusters will be offered as prizes along with free insurance and free gifts worth INR 20,000 ranging from Samsung Mobiles and LED TVs to buyers of Renault cars.
