Renault all set to take the Indian auto market by storm, buoyed by the success of its compact SUV, the Duster. The French auto maker is planning to launch 7-8 cars in the next five years, keeping an entry-level at the centre of its strategy.
Carlos Tavares, COO of Renault, commenting on the ongoing work on the small entry-level car is progressing well. "We really love this market. I think people here have such a high level of demand and such an accurate value evaluation system that making something for this country is always very challenging. But it is always very rewarding too, if you hit the right product. So, we have to be very sure and identify the right attributes for a product for India."
The company is working on the codenamed A Entry car, which is expected to be powered by an 800 cc petrol engine. Considering its performance on the Indian roads, the A Entry, will be launched worldwide. Renault is also working on an MPV codenamed J92. After, it’s spilt from Mahindra & Mahindra; Renault has launched 5 new models within 18 month of its separation.
