It seems that the French are all set to take the court again as Renault is going to make a comeback in the Indian market with the brand new version of its first sub-compact SUV in India, The Renault Duster.
With that said, the Renault-Nissan JV will announce the next phase of its investment in India by the end of this month. The JV also plans to invest just over $500 million or roughly 4,000 crores in India within the next 5 years.
- According to senior company employees, the funding is in its final stages of approval
- There’s another great news with the $500 million investment, both brands also plan on introducing a new CMF-B platform.
- It is also speculated that the Renault Duster will also make its comeback by 2024-25.
- We also expect to see the facelifted version of the Renault Kiger and the Nissan Magnite by mid-2023.
- During this time Renault might as well introduce other CBU units between new launches.
- The last update on the Renault Duster was introduced back in 2018 and with limited sales, it was expected to be discontinued.
- But, it seems that Renault still had some other plans for the Hyundai Venue and the Maruti Suzuki Brezza rival.
- The European spec Dacia/Renault Duster comes with a 1.5 dCi diesel engine churning 113 HP along with a 4*2 & 4*4 variant.
- Although, It is also quite certain that Renault might follow in the footsteps of its fellow Indian carmakers like Hyundai and Maruti and quit the Diesel market for good.
