RENAULT ENTERS INDIA WITH A JOINT VENTURE
Renault, the French auto-maker, is partnering with Mahindra and Mahindra, the Indian tractor and SUV maker, to launch its ‘Logan’. It has developed the Logan especially for Emerging Markets. The four door saloon car is already sold in Romania and is a low-cost car suitable for emerging market purchasing power.
Logan will enter India’s mid-market and will compete head to head with Tata, Ford and Hyundai. The mid-market segment represents 20 per cent of the total auto market, which reached 1 million cars in 2004. Renault’s partnership with Mahindra and Mahindra will force the latter to dispose of its small stake in the Indian Ford subsidiary. Renault together with Nissan (now 44 per cent owned by Renault), is focusing on growing auto markets in emerging countries.
