Renault Logan is 2 millionth vehicle built at Ayrton Senna complex
The two Renault plants (PC and LCV) comprise Ayrton Senna complex in Curitiba (Brazil). The establishment has reached a production landmark with a new Logan built today being the 2,000,000th vehicle built by the complex in 15 years.
Through a Mahindra and Renault collaboration, Logan was launched in India in April 2007 to help Renault reduce costs by 15%. The first RHD Logan was sold in India. In time, both automakers parted ways but Mahindra still sells Logan here with tech support from Renault. Mahindra did rename Logan as Verito.
While Mahindra Renault Logan was introduced with great pomp, the sedan didn’t sell as expected. In April 2010, M&M bought out Renault’s 49% in the Mahindra Renault JV giving Mahindra incraesed flexibility in engineering the car to suit the Indian market.
The Mahindra-Renault logo was in use till March 2011 end. The JV dissolution saw Mahindra retain rights to produce and sell Logan under its the Mahindra Verito name. The front fascia here has been altered but Renault’s petrol and diesel engines are in use. In 2013 June, Mahindra introduced a notchback version, Verito Vibe.
