Speaking on the occasion, Marc Nassif - MD, Renault India Pvt. Ltd said, We created a whole new segment in the Indian automotive market with the Duster launch in July this year and demonstrated Renault's commitment to the Indian market with the introduction of a reliable, efficient and innovative vehicle. India is an important market for Renault globally, with the country set to become one of the top ten markets for the company worldwide by 2013 and to sustain this ambition an unprecedented five models have been launched in the Indian market along with setting up of 75 dealerships in less than 18 month which is the fastest ramp up in the Indian market.
After the whopping success of their Duster SUV in India , Renault has now started exports. The first batch of 350 Duster SUVs has been dispatched to UK and Ireland. Dusters from the export batch will be available in both 4x2 and 4x4 variants. Renault's Oragadam facility is currently the only one manufacturing right-hand drive Dusters .
