Default Mahindra-Renault-Nissan to open manufacturing unit in Chennai

Mahindra-Renault-Nissan will be investing in a plant that they will be sharing for production of their vehicles. Mahidra-Renault will be selling their vehicles through a joint venture company and through their own dealers. While Nissan will have their own dealers to sell their brand of cars.

The Hindu : Business : 3 auto majors to put up plant

Quote:
For the first time ever in India, multi-brand vehicles from different automobile companies will roll out from a single facility. In a unique exercise, Mahindra & Mahindra of India has joined hands with Renault SA of France and Nissan Motor Company of Japan to form a three-way joint venture to set up an automobile manufacturing facility at Oragadam on the outskirts of Chennai
# Vehicles will roll out of assembly line in the second half of 2009
# Oragadam facility to make power trains for Nissan, Renault

Oragadam is a place near chennai were the Indian Automotive research/test center is being constructed. Some major growth is expected in this area. This place is close to the Chennai-Bangalore G-QUAD.

Sign of the times, i guess. India is going to be a major auto component manufacturing hub & chennai is going to be in the eye of the storm.

Looks like things are moving in the right direction on this one. Bajaj is promising a Nano competitor by 2011 (that far ?)
