Renault is continuing to keep up its momentum towards the launch of its cars in India. Mr. Marc NASSIF, MD of Renault India said, “Since April this year, we have moved very fast in getting our product plans in place. We are ahead of plan on selecting and appointing dealers and are on track to meet the challenging targets that we have set for ourselves in India and to ensure that we live up to the brand promise that Renault will bring to its Indian customers.”
In September 2010, Mr. Len Curran joined Renault India as Vice President of Sales and Marketing and member of the Management Committee for Renault India. Len joined Renault in 1991 and since 2006 was Director of Commercial Operations with Renault UK.
“I am personally delighted to take up the challenge of leading Renault’s offensive on what is amongst the toughest markets in the world. Our Dealer network will play an important role in our launch into the Indian market and we have been impressed by the high standard of applications. This is allowing us to reach agreements with Dealer partners who will deliver the highest standards of quality and service to our customers.” said Curran.
After a failed joint venture with Mahindra , Renault has decided to make an independent start in the Indian market. The company will launch the FLUENCE and Koleos in mid-2011, there will be 3 more cars arriving by mid-2013. The range will include a small hatchback.
