Today morning Renault India commenced exports of the Duster to RHD markets around the world starting with UK and Ireland from the Ennore port in Chennai.

The first two export markets for Renault India will sell the Duster as a Dacia. The cars are manufactured at the Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Oragadam, Chennai, the only production plant in the world that makes the Duster in RHD. 350 cars were loaded on to a ship that will leave to the UK today. Sales of the Duster begin in Britain in January 2013 across 127 Renault dealerships that are equipped with dedicated space and sales persons to sell the “shockingly affordable” SUV.


The Duster will retail in three trims – Access, Ambiance and Laureate – from £8,995 (7.88 lakhs INR). Pre-orders for the Duster started back in June and over 1,000 Britons have already booked their cars with a deposit of £100.
