News has emerged that Renault has decided to make its manufacturing facility at Oragadam near Chennai, which it shares with its alliance partner Nissan, as hub for the manufacturing of the Duster SUV (based on the Logan platform) and for the distribution of the same to other countries, just as Nissan does with its Micra hatchback car.  The alliance companies have invested in a very big facility that crank out many numbers and the Indian market currently cannot support so many vehicles.  The plan that Renault-Nissan always had was to make Oragadam an export hub as well as the base for India specific vehicles.
