Renault India just seems to not stop. With the year end just round the corner the company is going all out to end the year with a bang.As earlier mentioned in the previous reports the company is planning to launch three more cars.
The three cars would also include a small car which seems to be the buzz word these days among the Indian auto markets. This was revealed by a company top official. All these cars are exclusively part of Renault Company and it has nothing to do with any of its previous associations with the Mahindra. Even the future associations if any have nothing to do with company’s present cars being launched. They are totally owned by the Renault right from the Auto Cad part to the on road release of the cars. The Renault Vice President (Sales and Marketing) Len Curran was all strong about Renault going single in the Indian auto circuit at least for the time being.
First of the three cars would be the genesis of a small car. The latter would be a mini sports utility vehicle for the off beat and comfort car owners. The final car in the trilogy would be the entry segment luxury car which would most probably be a sedan. This is part of the company’s plans to be in the top three car makers of the Indian market.
On the eve of the Renault Koleos launch, Len Curran added that the car was particularly launched in Kerala because of its strategic business proposition. Currently in Kerala for every 1000 people, 40 of the people own a car.
As of now the number is fourteen with respect to the dealerships in Kerala. The company plans to add another 40 by the mid year of 2012. Renault Koleos has so far been debuted only in India.
The price of the car stands at Rs 22.94 lakh (ex-showroom). The Koleos is created at the Renault's Chennai plant, which has a production capacity of 50,000 cars annually.
