Renault-Nissan plant to operate nightshift to meet Renault Kwid demand

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Bookings for Renault Kwid have crossed 110,000.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance plant in Chennai has started the third shift in one of its assembly lines this week to meet the high demand of the Renault Kwid. Currently, pre-orders have crossed above 110,000 units.

Reports suggest that Renault will be producing 1,600 cars per day after the new shift comes into play.

A nightshift will allow the company to lower the 7 month waiting period (average) of the Renault Kwid for customers, as well as clear up backlogs before Datsun launches its CMF-A-based redi-GO in the coming months. Reports suggest that Renault will be producing 1,600 cars per day after the new shift comes into play.

Along with the local market, the company is also commencing export operations to countries such as Mauritius and Sri Lanka, with more markets to follow soon. It will also be exported as parts and components to South America and perhaps Africa.
