The launch of Captur is well supported by Renault’s aggressive network expansion plans, both from a sales and service perspective. Along with a progressive product expansion plan, Renault has laid a firm plan to aggressively expand its network reach across India. From a modest presence of 14 dealership outlets in May 2011, Renault India expanded its pan-India dealership network to more than 300 dealership outlets so far. Priority Renault has four sales outlets and two service outlets that will make Renault products and services, including Renault Captur, more accessible to customers across Goa.
