Renault Duster to be launched officially in UK, to be produced from India




In Goodwood at UK, the Renault Duster will be available during the festival of speed from June 28 to 1st July. From July 28, the Duster is available for pre-order with a £100 deposit through Dacia.co.uk after the car is customized using the configurator.

However, the deliveries of the car will start once the production starts in India and they are bound for export, which is expected in January 2013.  The UK market will get its prices on June 27th via the internet and Dacia has promised that they will be “shockingly affordable.” Renault India has made no such promises but will realize if they aren’t so, the kitchen turns unbearably hot as Ford lands the EcoSport early next year and rivals Maruti and Hyundai are ready with their launches in the coming years.

In the mean time, the car maker will launch the model in India at an indicative starting price of Rs 7 lac for the petrol variant.

Dacia has appointed 127 retailers (all Renault dealers) in the UK who have displayed LHD demo vehicles. However, in India the launch is slated to be on 04th July and 1000 bookings have already been done.
