More from Motoring

Since October last year, Renault India has managed to sell more than 1,10,000 units of the Kwid. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that their cumulative sales (Jan-Nov) this year is 178 per cent more than the corresponding period from 2015.

Unsurprisingly, monthly sales have also picked up, at 9,604 units, in comparison to 7,819 cars last year – an improvement of 23 per cent. The refreshed Duster (launched earlier this year) and the recent Kwid AMT are the strong, rather recent additions to the line-up.

The manufacturer plans to increase the number of sales/service outlets to 270 by the end of this year. While the official announcement doesn’t talk about demonetisation as such, it must be noted that Renault India was one of the first manufacturers to adopt to cashless payments, both for sales and service.
