Renault Duster, perhaps the most ‘talked about’ production model car of recent times has really worked it out for Renault in India. With 20,000 bookings till date and huge popularity among car enthusiasts, Duster is really a head turner on the roads!
Renault India has also taken the way to revise prices of Duster, especially to keep up with the rising input costs. The company has announced a price hike of up to Rs. 40,000 for the Duster.
A company statement says: “The price for Duster petrol variant will see a price increase by Rs 30,000 whereas the Duster diesel will see a price hike by Rs 40,000”. However, the introductory price will be maintained for all the bookings made until the end of August 2012, delivered or not at the time of the price hike, it also added.
Mr. Marc Nassif, MD, Renault India, said: “Facing an increase in raw material prices and instability in foreign exchange, factors which are beyond our control, we had to increase the retail price of Renault Duster”.
To meet the demand for the Duster’s overwhelming response the company has increased production to three shifts in Chennai factory as well as the outputs of vendors.
