Renault India sold 12,972 cars last month in comparison to the 1,527 units sold in August 2015. This sales performance makes it the highest ever monthly sales for the manufacturer.

From January to August this year, 86,835 Renault cars were sold as against 26,559 units in the same period last year. This shows a 227 per cent jump in the car sales. The huge sales success can be attributed to the demand of the entry-level Kwid hatchback launched last year. The French car manufacturer had sold more than 80,000 Kwids in 11 months and now will soon cross the one lakh sales mark.

The Renault Kwid was an instant hit amongst Indian buyers owing to its SUVish design and segment-first features. Its demand kept on increasing due to its aggressive and affordable pricing. Also, the carmaker's localisation drive helped the carmaker put up an aggressive and affordable price tag for the car.

In fact, the Kwid has recently been introduced with a 1.0-litre engine in addition to the 800cc variant. Then the carmaker also added a World Edition Lodgy to their line-up. All this combined with the sales of the facelifted Duster, Renault India has achieved a 4.5 per cent share in the Indian market. The good sales performance is backed up by 221 dealerships across India and will reach 270 units by end of this year.
