Renault India expanded its network presence in Telangana with the inauguration of 2 new state-of-the-art Showroom facilities, Renault Kompally, Renault Malakpet (PPS Motors Pvt. Ltd.) and 1 workshop Renault Madhapur (PPS Motors Pvt. Ltd.) The new showroom facilities and the new workshop will offer Renault India’s best-in-class products and services to the discerning customers in Hyderabad and adjoining areas.
This is part of Renault’s aggressive network expansion plan across the country which saw an addition of 17 new sales and service touchpoints, which include 14 showrooms and 3 workshops across India. With the inauguration of the new dealerships, Renault’s network has expanded to more than 390 sales and 470+ service touchpoints, which include 200+ Workshop On Wheels locations across the country.
Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, “India is an important market for Renault’s global growth plans, and we have a thorough business strategy for this dynamic automotive market. This is reflected by our robust product enhancement strategy, our rapid network expansion and fervent efforts to ensure customer delight. Although we are cautious given the current situation, it is encouraging to see that we are attracting new dealers in these times, as well as getting more investments and expansion requests by existing partners. This is enabling us to expand our presence to cater to more customers in metro cities as well as emerging tier II-IV cities across the country.”
In July 2020, Renault recorded sales of 6,422 units, which is a 75.5% growth over last year and there is an encouraging response to the recently launched TRIBER AMT and the new versions introduced in the KWID range. Renault will take its product strategy forward with the launch of the DUSTER with an all-new turbo petrol engine, which will make it the most powerful SUV in the segment. Together with this, a focussed business strategy led by an engaged network participating in the new initiatives, using digital platforms extensively to reach out to customers, and providing them the best of the services in these challenging times have contributed to Renault efficiently managing the current business environment.
Sudhir Malhotra, Head – Sales & Network, Renault India, said, “We have always taken concerted efforts to best serve our customers and expanding our dealership network is one of the ways we can cater more efficiently to our growing customer base. This has perfectly supplemented the host of attractive offers for customers, which include staggered payment schemes, deferred EMIs, cash offers, exchange benefits and special finance rates. At the same time, we worked closely with our dealer partners by offering special incentives, relaxation on targets, facilitated faster financial transactions and support in terms of inventory holding costs, which have helped to foster a stronger-than-ever business relationship, especially in these challenging times.”
The newly inaugurated dealership facilities have been designed according to the RENAULT STORE concept. RENAULT STORE is a new generation of dealerships which have been conceptualized to best address the evolving needs of customers by highlighting the value of the brand, products, services and accessories in a modern and more effective manner.
Speaking about the partnership with Renault India, Mr. Rajiv Mahesh Sanghvi, Managing Director, PPS Motors Private Limited, said, “PPS Motors began its association with Renault India by starting 1 dealership in Hyderabad. Today, we have grown our relationship and have expanded to 8 Renault showrooms and 5 Renault workshops which are spread across Southern and Western India. Renault is growing its presence in India and we see it as an ideal brand to partner.
