French auto manufacturer Renault has resumed operations in India after the nation-wide lockdown was partially lifted across select cities in the country. The company has re-opened its corporate office, select dealerships and service centres in India after the relaxations were announced.
Renault India has opened more than 194 showrooms and workshops across the country. All of them will adhere and operate under the new protocols to maintain hygiene and a safe environment. The company will re-open the rest of the customer touchpoints in a phase-wise manner after receiving necessary permissions from local authorities to operate.
Commenting on the reopening, Venkatram Mamillapalle, CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations Country, said, "In India, we have started the business operations in a phased manner. We have a long-term commitment here and India plays an important role in the strategic operations of Groupe Renault. Customer safety and satisfaction is our main objective and is one of the driving forces behind everything we do."
As the lockdown is gradually being lifted and business is slowly resuming, the company is primarily focusing on safekeeping of its customers and work-force across its dealer network in the country.
The company also stated that it has introduced several safety and hygiene protocols as it prepares to ‘Welcome Back Customers' to its showrooms across the country. Renault India dealerships have ensured special care to sanitise their facilities, test drive cars and serviced cars before delivering it to the customers.
Additionally, the company is training its employees on protocols to be followed to ensure safety and to monitor the execution of Renault's customer-first initiatives and efforts, as a part of the 'Welcome Back Customers' initiative.
It has also started dispatching BS6 cars from the plant to various parts of the country including the Northern part of India and Tamil Nadu. Renault has also begun its export operations of parts that come under the 'Make in India' initiative at its facilities in Chennai and Pune.
In related news, Renault India is gearing up to launch the Triber AMT variant in the Indian market. We expect the company to launch the automatic version of the compact-SUV on May 18, 2020.
Ahead of its launch, Renault had showcased the Triber AMT MPV at the 2020 Auto Expo. The upcoming Renault Triber AMT will be powered by the same BS6-compliant 1.0-litre petrol engine. It produces 71bhp and a peak torque of 96Nm and comes mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox with the optional AMT offered on top-trim variants — here are more details.
