Mr. Ghosn to unveil Renault compact car in India

Renault and Nissan chairman CEO Carlos Ghosn will visit India this month-end to unveil their compact car which will be launched early next year.

Ghosn, will unveil the concept version of Renault’s compact car prior to the start of the inaugural Formula One Grand Prix of India, which is scheduled to take place in October 28-30.

Renault which announced its re-entry in India with the Fluence Sedan, recently launched the Koleos SUV.

The small will be pitted against the Maruti Suzuki Swift, VW Polo, Hyundai i20 and the Ford Figo which will be the main competitors.

Renault will unveil and launch its compact car at Delhi’s international Auto Expo in January. The booking for the car would commence on the same day. The concept compact car to be unveiled later this month will not be very different from the production version of the same car.

It will also be a global launch for Renault, as this car has yet to be launched anywhere else. The car is developed keeping the Indian market in mind, say Renault India executives. It shares its platform with Nissan’s premium hatchback Micra.
