Renault Triber is the brand’s best-selling car in India with as many as 931 units sold last month, which is more than what Kwid and Duster could manage
Launched in September 2019, Renault Triber is the brand’s newest 7-seater car for India. Within some months of its launch, the Triber easily outsold its hatchback sibling, the Kwid to become the best-selling car of Renault in our country. Even after the very tough period caused by the nationwide lockdown, Renault Triber helped Renault make a sales recovery during the month of May. Once again, in May 2020, the Triber outsold Kwid and Duster to become the company’s best-selling car in India.
Like we said, other than the facelifted Renault Kwid and Duster, the Triber has been playing a vital role in the carmaker’s overall sales performance since last financial year. In FY2019-2020, Renault was also the only carmaker to report positive sales growth of 12 per cent with 89,534 sales unit sold as against 79,654 units registered in the previous fiscal year. Ever since the Triber first debuted in the market, the MPV has registered a sale of as many as 33,860 units sold across India.
While the Indian automobile industry is stepping towards normalcy, the limited progress has still taken a heavy toll on the car sales figures. Thankfully, carmakers have started seeing the number rise a bit last month. Last month, 931 units of the Triber were dispatched, making the it the best-selling Renault car in India during the month of May 2020.
Renault launched the Triber AMT for an introductory price of Rs 6.18 Lakh in India last month.
Standing behind the Triber is the Renault Kwidwhich ended up with a total sales number of 684 units as opposed to 5,152 units sold in the same period last year, thereby posting a de-growth of 87 per cent. The Renault Duster garnered 138 sales as against 672 units recorded in the same period of 2019, which amounts to a 79 per cent sales decline on a year-on-year basis. The Renault Lodgy and Renault Captur were reported with zero sales as the former has been phased out from the lineup while the latter is yet to receive a BS6 update.
Cumulatively, the French automobile manufacturer registered 1,753 unit sales last month. The figure looks quite low as compared to 5,949 units sold in the same period of last year but it signals the improving buyer sentiment in the current scenarios. A major part of Triber’s success is its clever pricing. Presently, the Triber retails at Rs 4.99 – 7.22 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
