Managing director and chief executive at the Indian unit Sumit Sawhney said “transformation towards electric vehicles (EVs) is inevitable in India”, while conceding that the company is “awaiting a government policy on research and development before taking a long-term strategic decision.”

Renault is the EV leader in European markets, he added, while describing the company as “well-poised, optimistic and excited for its India operations.

Citing an increasing need for innovation and disruption at the India unit, the company built design centres in Mumbai and Chennai in 2017 to recruit and promote local talent, said Laurens van den Acker, chief designer of the Trezor and senior vice-president, corporate design, Groupe Renault.
