French automaker Renault's fully owned Indian subsidiary is now planning to launch two new products in the country to keep the sales momentum going for the company here. One of these two products will be a new hatchback built on the new Common Module Family-Affordable (CMF-A) platform, other will be an MPV, possibly a badge re-engineered product of Nissan Evalia.
Speaking to TOI, Renault India's executive director Sumit Sawhney said that the company will take the total number of products from existing five to seven-eight in the next two-three years. "Renault India has introduced five products in 18-20 months. The next 24 months will see introduction of two products and consolidation of the market," he said.
Out of the five product that Renault India sells today, three are badge engineered- Koleos-X-Trail, Scala-Sunny and Pulse- Micra, and a badge engineered Terrano- Nissan's version of the Duster will be launched very soon. So, with these two products in its line-up, Renault will only be needing an entry level sedan to have a product in all the important segments.
And if rumours are to be believed, Renault-Nissan are also working on a Micra/Pulse based sedan, which will be positioned in the highly competitive entry level sedan segment. This entry level sedan will compete against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and Honda Amaze.
