It’s no surprise that Renault has chosen to introduce the Triber and Kwid BS6 as early as possible. These two cars have helped Renault India deliver increase in domestic sales. Before the launch of Triber, Renault only had one car, Kwid, which managed to register sales in the 5k region every month. Now, Triber sales have been equally good.
In fact, performance has been swell, enough to see the Triber in the list of bestselling MUVs. Considering the Triber was only just launched in August 2019, sales improvement has been noticed for every subsequent month. Seeing it’s market performance surely Renault India would want to keep the momentum going.
As the BSVI mandate deadline approaches, April 1, 2020, Renault India is likely to introduce its BSVI offerings in quick time. The Renault Duster petrol BS6 has been spied testing and should be available in a few weeks. Renault Captur BS6 too has been spied testing. Renault has decided to discontinue diesel car sales post the implementation of BS6.
The manufacturer also sells Lodgy and Captur. However, Lodgy sales is best not mentioned. Between June and November 2019, only 220 units were sold. In comparison, between August and November 2019, 18,511 units were sold. Renault HBC sub 4 metre compact SUV too has been spied testing and is set to debut at Auto Expo 2020. The Triber based offering will further strengthen Renault’s compact car range.
