"Renault India would like to bring to notice that the news article titled ‘Renault Halts KWID Output’ that appeared in Times of India dated May 17 is factually incorrect and misleading. The article claims that 1,500 engines have been scrapped due to high noise levels. This is incorrect and Renault had no such concerns at its end. Renault India recently ramped up production at our Chennai facility by starting third shift operations to cater to market demand. Moreover, Renault India is also increasing the speed of our production line. In addition to the maintenance shutdown planned towards the end of May, Renault India has decided to slow down production since last week in order to ensure a perfect execution of the ramp up of our production volumes," said the company in the statement.

"Renault India would like to reiterate and reinforce that the company remains fully confident in the mid and long-term growth prospects of its business in India. Over the next few years, Renault India will further strengthen its position in the market and be a significant player in India’s dynamic auto market," added Renault India. Just so you know, Renault is all set to launch several new accessory packs of the Kwid in the coming weeks, while it is believed that the company would introduce the Kwid 1.0L and Kwid AMT by the second half of 2016. Renault Kwid has registered over 1 Lakh bookings since its launch.
