The Renault Kwid has significantly contributed to the company’s increasing market share.

To cope with the increasing demand, Renault India is planning to start a third shift to increase the production number of the Renault Kwid to 10,000 units per month.

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 American and, possibly, European markets.
