Of the cars in the Renault India lineup, it is the newly launched Triber that has seen the most sales. Kwid was second, and Duster was third, followed by Captur and Lodgy. Total Aug 2019 domestic sales stood at 5,704 units.
The discount schemes offered in the month of August 2019 have now been extended to September with Renault India dealerships extending cash discounts, exchange bonuses and extended warranty schemes on the Kwid, Duster and Captur. September marks the beginning of the festive season and automakers are hopeful that these discounts could bring in some improvement in terms of sales.
There is no discount scheme on the Renault Triber, the 7 seater compact SUV which was launched in India in August 2019 at Rs.4.95 lakhs. It is the best selling Renault car for the Aug 2019 month.
Renault Kwid can now be bought with a cash discount of Rs.20,000, exchange bonus of Rs.20,000 along with a 4 year warranty. The Lodgy has also failed to attract the customer and hence the company plans to discontinue sales of the Lodgy MPV along with that of the Renault Captur. Both cars are available at huge discounts of up to Rs 1.5 lakh.
The pre facelift version of the Renault Duster is on sale through the month of September 2019 with a Rs.1 lakh benefit on select diesel models while the Renault Duster Facelift model can be bought all through the month with Rs.10,000 loyalty or Rs.20,000 exchange bonus on exchanging the pre-facelifted Duster for the Duster facelift.
The auto industry may be in slow down mode but this has not stopped the automakers in their tracks as is seen in the case of Renault India which is gearing up for the launch of the Kwid facelift. The Kwid facelift borrows several design cues from the City K-ZE electric vehicle while its interiors could follow a similar design as seen on the new Renault Triber.
Once launched, the new Renault Kwid will compete with the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and the Alto. The current Renault Kwid is priced from Rs.2.76-4.75 lakhs but the facelift would be priced a bit higher.
