According to French car maker Renault officially announcement that they are going to launch its second car, Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) Koleos, in the Indian market in October. The Koleos model is expected to be launched in the price segment of Rs 20 lakh where it will be competing with the likes of Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail, Ford Endeavour, Chevrolet Captiva and Toyota Fortuner. The Koleos SUV is expected to hit the Indian roads in this Diwali season.
Renault India is all set to launch a SUV in the country but when it does come to showrooms near you, it will come with an all new visual package. The first images of the face-lifted version of the Renault Koleos are out ahead of its official unveiling which was earlier planned for the Frankfurt auto show later this year. A couple of days back the first images of the SUV had leaked on to the internet and now we can bring the full high definition images of the SUV that Renault has planned for India.
The company is now looking forward to become a leading car brand in the country within next 3 to 5 years. The company has planned to roll-out as many as five new car models in the Indian market by year 2012. It plans to sell over 1,00,000 units of its cars in the Indian market over the period of next three years.
Speaking to the reporters recently, Marc Nassif, managing director of Renault India said, “We believe it is a fresh start for us and courtesy Logan, we are fully prepared and know this market a lot better. Logan did not deliver in terms of sales figures and profitability and that is obvious, but the learning curve has been steep and the results of it would be visible in Fluence and all our future products.”
