Renault is on refining spree
After much fuss over refining the Logan, Renault has come forward to meet the specifications preferred by M&M. To save any sort of rift between the two companies now Renault has agreed to consider the options meted out by Logan in the shape of the car. The length will be reduced to avail the 10%duty relief from the government. Renault is now breaking its rigidity and ensured the outcome of refined version and the steps are being taken to analyse the reduction of the length of the car by 4 metre from the existing 4.2 metere.
If it happens then it may come near anywhere to Maruti Swift D’zire, Tata Indigo and Ford Ikon on price range. Other discrepancy is the wiper placed on the wrong side for the right hand drive which is also to be set right. With these changes, Renault has been on the sale target of 15000 units for 2010-11 against 5981 in the duration of April-February 2010.
The announcement about the revamp is likely to be made by the CEO of Renault Carlos who is to visit India soon. He expressed the concern over the low sale of Logan and hinted at the possible discussion over the refining of the car. He assured that all efforts will be made to retain the car with the JV from M&M. the earlier version about the low sale of Logan was that M&M was reluctant to sell it on price factor and the reposition was an another one. Once the decision is made then the car will see the production in the Chennai facility of Renault-Nissan and not under M&M JV.
