Renault India’s Gang of Dusters reached Goa yesterday as part of the West Coast Expedition drive. The Gang of Dusters initiative is aimed at offering customers and their families a chance to enjoy adventurous long drives across the country with the Renault team. The West Coast Expedition, the first drive under the Gang of Dusters initiative, will take place through the Independence Day weekend and was flagged off from Mumbai on 15 August, 2013.
The first of many drives to come as part of the Gang of Dusters, the West Coast Expedition started from Mumbai and saw owner-driven Dusters pass through Panhala and Dandeli before reaching Goa. The drive will move on to Kolad before culminating back in Mumbai on the 19 August, 2013.
“After creating a new segment and reshaping the perception of Indian drivers about SUVs, the Renault Duster has been one of the most popular vehicles in the country over the past year and has won over nearly 60,000 owners”, said Sumit Sawhney, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Renault India Pvt. Ltd. “The Gang of Dusters is a celebration of a fabulous year and an opportunity for us share with Duster owners a sense of freedom and excitement with an adventurous drive and welcome each and every one of them into the Renault family.”
During the drive, participants had the opportunity to meet and share experiences with other Duster owners and drive enthusiasts as well as visit historic sites and go on a wildlife safari. Other activities awaiting the participants include talking to a rally expert, taking part in impromptu rallies, rock climbing, building rafts and attending interactive service sessions, among others.
The Gang of Dusters initiative will continue after the West Coast Expedition, with regular drives organized for owners across India in the coming months. For more information on the West Coast Expedition as well as to register for upcoming drives, visit https://www.renault.co.in/gangofdusters .
