Renault has finally decided to operate independently in India. After four years of alliance with Mahindra, the French car maker has finally decided to part ways in India. Mahindra and Mahindra and Renault have 51:49 joint venture in India. They launched its entry level sedan model Mahindra Renault Logan in India which failed to churn out numbers for the company. Sources close to the developments report that both the companies have been experiencing difference of opinion over engineering and pricing issues for quite some time now.

Renault will open its own dealerships in various cities of India. Mahindra dealers have also expressed interest in opening up new separate dealerships for Renault. However, Mahindra dealerships will continue to sell Mahindra Renault Logan model from 100-odd dealerships across India.
