Production of cars at the Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd (RNAIPL) will not be impacted due to the fire that gutted down the warehouse belonging to Yusen Logistics (India) Ltd, a senior official of Nissan Motor India Friday said.

Renault Nissan Automotive is a vehicle manufacturing joint venture between French group Renault and Japanese Nissan Motor Company. The 400,000 units per annum car plant, located at Oragadam near here, rolls out Nissan and Renault badged cars.

"Following a fire yesterday (Thursday) at Yusen Logistics parts warehouse, Nissan can confirm there will be no impact on production or car export from our manufacturing plant in Chennai (RNAIPL) and production is continuing today as normal," Lavanya Wadgoankar, head corporate communications, Nissan Motor India said in a statement issued Friday.

"A contingency plan is being finalised which will minimise any potential disruption to the normal supply of some after-sales vehicle parts, although there are no further details to add at this stage," she added.

"The destroyed stocks are owned by RNAIPL and they have been insured," Wadgoankar told IANS.

Queried about the quantum of loss due to the fire accident, she said it cannot be commented upon at this point of time.

Wadgoankar said the company has other spare parts stocking warehouses in the country that will take care of the market needs.

She said production of Renault badged cars will also not be affected because of the fire at Yusen Logistics warehouse.
