Renault-Nissan's Chennai plant starts new shift to meet demand

Renault-Nissan's Chennai plant starts new shift to meet demand

Renault-Nissan's plant in Chennai has started a third production shift to meet the high demand of their vehicles.

The new shift will start this week on one of its two production lines. The increase in production of vehicles is primarily because of the Renault Kwid that has tasted a fair bit of success since its launch. Apart from the entry-level hatchback for the domestic market, the carmaker is also preparing for the upcoming Datsun Redi-Go. Then, models like the Sunny and Micra are being exported from this same plant. 

Colin MacDonald, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Renault Nissan Automotive India Private Ltd., said, "Increasing our production capability means we will be able to better meet the demands of our Indian and overseas customers by limiting waiting times on deliveries. On an average we have launched two new models each year since the plant opened. This is a testament to the skill and dedicated of our Indian workforce, including our supplier partners, who are not only providing a range of great products for our domestic customers but also showcasing Indian build-quality on the world stage."

This Chennai plant, under the Renault-Nissan alliance, is the largest alliance manufacturing facility in the world. It began operations in March 2010 with an investment of Rs 4,500 crore, which has now increased to Rs 6,100 crore. 12 new models from Nissan, Renault and Datsun are produced at this plant that cater to the domestic as well as the international market. Till now, more than 10 lakh units have been produced for India and more than six lakh cars have been shipped to 106 countries.
