The French automotive giant Renault, in its attempt to strengthen its presence in the highly competitive Indian automotive market, has unveiled an ambitious plan. The company has given this plan the title of ‘Renaultution India 2024.’ The company, under this initiative, will be introducing five new products within the next three years. This new plan comes in addition to Renault’s substantial €3 billion investment, which it has announced for hubs outside Europe, including India. Now, if you are one of those waiting to know which 5 new Renault cars will be coming to India, then you have come to the right place.
All-new Renault Duster
The first car on this list is the all-new Renault Duster, which the company has already showcased. The Duster has been the brand’s most successful launch in the country, and its comeback will be extremely stronger as the company has designed it to fit the highly competitive compact SUV segment. The new Duster is based on the new CMF-B platform and will be bigger and more technologically advanced.
It most likely will be offered with three engine options in the country. Sadly, no diesel engine will be available this time. There will be a 1.6-litre petrol, 1.2-litre mild hybrid petrol, and a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine on offer. The car will also get a brand new interior, which will come with a 7-inch screen for driver information and a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment functions and a number of other features. As per the reports, it will be launched around the second half of 2024.
All-New Renault Triber
The affordable seven-seater MPV from Renault, which is the Triber, is a huge hit in the Indian automotive market, and the second car to come under the new Renault plan is the all-new version of it. It is believed that the company will be giving it a thorough exterior and interior redesign and make it more modern to appeal to the new buyers. It will most likely get enhanced comfort and additional features. There are also reports that have suggested that after the launch of the updated Triber, Nissan, the partner of Renault, will also create a new MPV based on this updated Triber.
All-New Renault Kiger
Apart from the Triber, the company is also gearing up for the launch of the all-new Kiger. Reports have stated that the company will be providing the car a much-needed facelift. Most likely, this new model will be based on the Brazilian model Kardian. It will get a brand new front fascia, new LED headlights, new front grille, and an updated bumper. It will also get an updated interior with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It could also get ADAS level 2 features as well. It could also get a new 1.0-litre three-cylinder 125 bhp and 225 Nm of torque producing GDi turbo petrol engine.
The French automaker Renault is looking to grab market share in the growing electric vehicle market of India. For this, the company is working on the launch of its mass-market electric vehicle, the Kwid EV. This electric variant of the popular Kwid hatchback is expected to come with a single electric motor generating 45 Bhp and 125 Nm of torque, paired with a 26.8 kWh lithium-ion battery providing a range of 225 Km (WLTP). Most likely, it will be priced under Rs 10 lakh to give stiff competition to the Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3.
Renault Arkana Coupe Crossover
Apart from the budget vehicles, Renault is also gearing up to add a touch of sophistication to its lineup in India. The company is working on the development of the Arkana Coupe Crossover, which has been spotted on multiple occasions in the country. Combining coupe-inspired aesthetics with the versatility of a crossover, the Arkana will be the brand’s entry into a more premium segment in which at the moment it does not offer any vehicle.
Internationally, the Arkana comes with a choice of two engine options – the first of which is a mild-hybrid 1.3-litre engine that produces around 138 bhp. While the other drivetrain on offer is a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine producing 148 bhp that comes along with a 69 kW power-producing two electric motors. The exact launch date of the Arkana Coupe Crossover has not been revealed at the moment, but it could be arriving late 2025 or early 2026.
