Renault Kwid and Mahindra KUV100 Waiting Periods to Reduce Soon
Limited production capacity and overwhelming consumer demand has resulted in long waiting period for some of the most popular car models on sale in India today. Now, it seems that automakers like Renault and Mahindra are all set to address this situation, plaguing their highly coveted models like the Kwid hatchback and KUV100 micro SUV. Shattering the standards of success set by the Duster compact SUV, Kwid proved to be one of the biggest success story for the French automaker till date. Renault will soon introduce the 1.0-liter variant of Kwid hatchback, which is expected to deliver a power output of 70PS and will be made available to the consumers with an option of an AMT gearbox.
With over 90,000 units of Kwid hatchback already booked, the waiting period of some of the variants of this entry-level hatchback have shot up to almost a year in some parts of the country. To address this, Renault is amping up the production of its Oragadam factory and it has been reported that the increase in production will result in 8,000 to 10000 units being manufactured each month as compared to the current production rate of 5000-6000 units per month.
Coming to the lone contender in the Micro SUV segment, only a month after its launch, there is already three month wait for variants of KUV100. Mahindra, who has always been predominantly considered a diesel vehicle manufacturer was amazed when 50% of its customer base demanded petrol variants of KUV100. The six-seater is manufactured out of the Indian automaker’s Chakan plant, which currently manufactures around 5.500 units per month. Mahindra will soon increase the production of its facility to 8,500 units per month, over the course of coming months.
