Renault-Nissan Alliance Plant In Chennai To Begin Around The Clock Production

Renault-Nissan plant in Oragadam, Chennai is the first dedicated Alliance global plant. Representing an investment of 45 billion Rupees over 7 years, the plant has the capacity to produce 480,000 units per year at full ramp up. The plant was established by the Alliance primarily to meet the growing demand from Indian customers for high quality, locally-produced cars. It is complimented by a major R&D centre, also in Chennai, which plays a huge role in model development in India ensuring products are locally relevant.  

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is to implement a third production shift at its plant in Chennai, India in response to strong demand for its current line-up and to prepare for upcoming models. From this week, the plant will operate a new nightshift on one of its two production lines, which will effectively increase overall annual capacity. The decision will allow the plant to meet the accelerated domestic demand for the newly launched Renault Kwid and prepare for introduction of Datsun's third model in the coming months. The plant will continue to deliver the export demand for Chennai-produced vehicles around the world like Sunny and Micra.

The facility, which celebrated producing its one millionth unit in January, is currently India's second largest car exporter with more than 600,000 units shipped to 106 countries.
