Renault: Strategy intact, to double volume, mkt share in 5 yrs

first_imgGreater Noida, Feb 7 (PTI) Renault India, which unveiled a slew of models from its global portfolio at the Auto Expo here today, said it is hopeful meeting its both medium and long-term targets wherein it plans to double the volume and market share.With around 5 per cent market share, the French auto major with just four models ? Kwid, Duster, Captur and the Lodgy ? is the largest European car brand and the seventh largest overall in the country. Its medium-term volume target is to sell over 1 lakh annually and also to consistently retain 5 per cent market share.”While we have been hitting 5 per cent market share often, we havent yet closed a full year with that pie. So meeting that is the immediate priority.”Over the next five years, we have set a target of doubling our volumes, from a little over 1 lakh now, as well as market share to 10 per cent,” Sumit Sawhney, managing director and chief executive at Renault India, told PTI.He said that will continue with its strategy of building on brand by brand and will add one new model to its portfolio annually, thus explaining the lack of a new launch at the Expo as its 2018 model is already on the road in the Captur, which is a premium SUV.At the ongoing Delhi Auto Expo, the company today unveiled the Trezor, which is an all-electric Grand Tourer concept car; the Zoe e-Sport concept that defined by its expressive design, with sportiness taken to the extreme and is the best-bestselling EV in Europe.advertisementIt also unveiled a racing car with a Formula 1 RS 17, which is the first car put together from scratch by the Renault Sport Formula One Team.The two-seater electric coupe Trezor has been awarded the most beautiful concept car at several global platforms, said Fabrice Cambolive, senior vice-president and chairman for India and Africa, Middle East.On the countrys EV push, Sawhney said, Renault is a leader in EVs in Europe and as and when the market is ready they will have enough models to serve them.”But infrastructure is the key concern. While the industry is looking at the government for support and policy clarity, they are looking at us for infrastructure, which is not feasible for us. We also need clarity on incentives for going into EVs in terms of R&D sops, etc,” he said.On the market response to the Captur, he said the vehicle is not yet nationally available and that its petrol version is yet to reach the dealers.Sawhney downplayed the dip in its volume, saying he will still maintain the overall target of 1 lakh units and that the reason for the dip in volume is primarily because the Kwid segment is degrowing.”The Kwid segment, which is our volume topper, had degrown 2 per cent last year and is slipping this year as well. Yet we are selling around 8,000 units a month. So I will be able to meet my target of 1 lakh units a year.”On the MPV model Lodgy, he said, the company is nowhere near its target of 1,000 units a month, and is trending at under 500 now.

Face a fortune

Dadhichi, who’s been practicing for 27 years, is one of the best known astrologers world wide. Known for face reading and esoteric studies, Dadhichi blends in what the stars predict to tell the future. Mills&Boon brings Dadhichi to India with his set of predictions for the year..What got you in to horoscope and face reading?The choices that you make are in your genes but that gene is fate or destiny. As a child I grew up wanting to become an astro-physicist, and barely missed the mark there. I feel that astrology was my calling. Technical knowledge is nothing without intuition. I have been studying astrology for nearly 30 years. I began the practice when I was a child because my mother used to read astrology books to me at bed time. My father whom I didn’t really know, was said to be an excellent astrologer and palm reader so I guess that is rubbed off on me to a large extent.

A careful analysis and study over time will give you an insight into how these different facial structures differ and these can be categorised if you are diligent enough. In nature, the bodily and facial structure of an animal reflects its activities. A long beaked bird has this attribute for one reason only. That is to visit long stemmed flowers. In the same way the structure of a human being- ectomorph, endomorph or mesomorph ( three main structural types  ) determines the mental predisposition and also activity of these people.

It goes back to the Nadi’s (channels of the mind), the birth time, the family line, everything has been written and it all connects to astrology and face-reading. The Nadi leaves in India reveal your horoscope from just your thumb print! This is true astrology. All events, even the date of death, will be given. What is the India plan? I’m very pleased to be back in India after an absence of long years. Although not being physically here I have maintained my strong links with the teachers, the culture and of course the astrological and spiritual philosophy. Since being here have seen developments in leaps and bounds not just in terms of more modern looking structures but the infrastructure itself seems to have really changed for the better. I’m hoping now that the new cycle for India after 2014 will bring in a whole new level of prosperity, which will bring the country to the forefront of the world economy and once again reinstate the greatness of this land with its philosophical legacy.  In a way I have been a great exponent of India and its ancient science and philosophy which was thousands of years ahead of any of the modern research is in the West. read more
