Further, Renault is hoping to strengthen its sales volume by announcing a number of benefits. The company is offering maximum benefits of up to Rs. 80,000 on select variants across its product range. These offers are applicable for the month of September only. In addition to this, the automaker has also rolled out ten unique Loyalty Rewards to mark the ten years celebrations with maximum loyalty benefits up to Rs. 1.10 lakh.
Apart from this, Renault has announced other region-specific offers for customers in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa between September 1 and 10 in order to ring in festivities during the upcoming Ganesh Chaturthi.
