With 3 shifts, 10,000 units of Renault Kwid will be made each month


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.

Over 125,000 bookings for the Kwid registered already.

Renault will start a night shift at the Chennai plant next month to meet the high demand for the A segment crossover. With the introduction of a night shift, 10,000 units of the Kwid will be made per month.

With the introduction of a night shift, 10,000 units of the Kwid will be manufactured per month.

The French manufacturer has received well over 125,000 bookings and has delivered some 50,000 Kwids, since its launch late last year, and the waiting period for a new customer would be nearly 5 months. Renault India will also commence exports of the Kwid to SAARC countries as well as the South American markets in due course. So a bump in the production rate is a necessary move.

At the moment, Renault has shut down the factory for maintenance work, although the stoppage has no impact on deliveries, according to a Renault India spokesperson. The Kwid is manufactured at the Renault-Nissan Alliance plant alongside its Japanese cousin, the Datsun redi-GO, which will launch next month.

Renault will further increase the lineup by introducing 1L and 1L AMT variants of the Kwid before Diwali. Mr. Sumit Sawhney, Renault India’s CEO and Managing Director, had earlier confirmed that one of the variants would launch in June 2016, and this variant is understood by IAB as the 1L.
