Renault plans to bring volume-driver models in India

PARIS: Chasing volumes in India, French car major Renault plans to launch more products in the high selling sub-four meter category even as it prepares to get past 5 per cent market share by the end of 2017.

The company, which currently sells five models in the country including SUV Duster and hatchback Kwid, plans more 'Made in India' products and to introduce one new car each year as parts of its "product development strategy".

"In India most of the cars -- over 70 per cent are less than 4 meters. The weight of mini segment where we have Kwid is 25 per cent. So we have a large space to make our portfolio," Renault India Operations Country CEO and Managing Director Sumit Sawhney told PTI.

With 4-meter plus SUV segment, where the company has Duster, remaining in slow lane, it is the sub-4 meter SUVs and sedans which are bringing in volumes for the industry, he added.

"So clearly we have to bring vehicles in segments where we are not present and segments which can bring volume to us. This is what the strategy is. That's how there will be one new car coming every year," Sawhney said.

When asked if the company is planning to introduce a compact SUV anytime soon in the country to take on Maruti's high selling Vitara Brezza, Sawhney said: "I would not confirm anything right now.

"When I said for the first time that we will be launching a mini car people used to say this is a segment where nobody has succeeded. But you know what we got was a game changer in innovation. So, you will see innovation and game-changing products coming from Renault's side in every launch."

The company does not want to follow "me too" strategy, he added.

"Whatever car we want to bring, we want to bring volumes with that car. We won't bring a car just for the heck of bringing a car," Sawhney said.

The company, he said, is in the process of transitioning to mainstream products, moving away from the earlier strategy of having SKD and cross badged products.

"When we started our journey in India we had a joint venture and we wanted to come back to India very fast, so we adopted a bridge strategy. It was on back of SKD (semi-knocked down) products and cross badging products. This was only done to immediately come back," Sawhney said.

With three mainstream products -- Duster, Lodgy and Kwid, the company is now moving more towards the mainstream strategy, he said.

Audi India appoints Rahil Ansari as head of operation

NEW DELHI: Ingolstadt based luxury car maker Audi has appointed Rahil Ansari as the head of Indian operations effective 1st of February 2017.

Ansari, a person of Indian origin has a broad range of experience at Audi right from sales, after-sales, network development including finance. Ansari currently is the head of global pricing for Audi genuine parts for the after sales division. Ansari took over from Australian Joe King, who moved back to Germany a few months back.

The appointment of Ansari comes at a time when Audi is facing its toughest time in the Indian market. The brand has been hit by tough macro-economic environment on one hand and due to lifecycle change in products at its own end and unavailability of some diesel engine on the other, Audi is likely to end the 2016 with sales decline of over 20% to around 8500 units.

"I am confident that his diverse global experience combined with the understanding of the Indian market will help to consolidate the brand presence,” said Thierry Lespiaucq, Managing Director, Volkswagen Group Sales India Private Limited.
