Yesterday, the 100,000th SUV Duster was assembled in the assembly line of the Moscow Renault plant. Jubilee car was the silver vehicles in the 4x4 version with a two-liter engine.

The increase in the production was in stages, and, for the first half of 2013, the production volumes of Duster increased by 138% in compare with the same period of the last year.

“Renault in Russia came to another important step by producing the 100,000th Duster after only 15 months after its appearance in the market”, - said the General Director of Renault in Russia, Bruno Anselen. – “This car was a real achievement, as by sales, so by quality: as Logan and Sandero, Duster has a huge potential to attract new customers. We will continue to increase our production capacity to meet the consumer demand.”

Duster holds the status of the best buy SUV since October of 2012 and it became the third foreign model in Russia for the first half of 2013. The off-road version 4x4 has more than 70% of its total sales. To date, all versions of the car are offered in the market, including configurations 4x4 and 4x2, with a gasoline or diesel engine and an automatic or manual transmission. The basic version of the car costs RUB 469,000.

For example, such accessories of off-road vehicles were localized as a driver airbag, steering wheel, upholstery of boot door, seals, rope of boot opening, steel wheels, and many die-castings. The immediate plans include the using of seat belts, air ducts, fuel tank, fan and radiator of Russian production.
