Car maker Renault India has announced that its 7-seater MUV, Renault Triber, has been awarded the 4-star safety rating for adult occupant safety and 3-star child occupant safety from Global NCAP.
Renault said that the Triber, which was launched in August 2019, has been a “game-changing product for Renault in India” with more than 75,000 happy customers.
Commenting on the achievement, Venkatram Mamillapalle, country CEO & managing director at Renault India operations said: “Safety is of paramount importance for Renault and our products meet and exceed the requisite safety standards set by Indian regulatory authorities. An outcome of a joint project between Renault teams in India and France, Renault Triber has already established itself as a successful product and has seen tremendous acceptance amongst a wide set of car buyers. This is a proud moment for Renault in India, as Triber was conceived, developed and produced in India, for Indian customers first, before we took it to the world. The 4-star adult safety rating by Global NCAP for Triber reiterates our commitment towards safety.”
“This latest 4-star adult rating reaffirms that Renault stands by its commitment to make the best in global car safety, accessible to Indian customers. As a customer-focused company, Renault is already future-ready in terms of technology, design and engineering for enhanced safety for our vehicles and Renault Triber is a testimony to this,” he added.
David Ward, president at Towards Zero Foundation said: “It is satisfying to note Renault’s safety improvements with Global NCAP’s Triber crash test result. We would encourage them to continue this progress, and to set a five star or safer choice rating as their future target for the Indian market.”
