Ride in style with Renault India’s New 7-Seater SUV, Duster and Bigster
Delhi : Three new models are being developed by Renault for the Indian market. The Renault-Nissan alliance has stated that it will invest 5300 crore in India to manufacture approximately 6 new models, including EVs and SUVs. Two new SUVs from Renault as well as a brand-new electric vehicle will be introduced here.
In the C-segment, the company will introduce a new SUV that will compete with models like the Tata Harrier, the five-seat Mahindra XUV700, and the Hyundai Creta. This new SUV will also get a new 7-seater derivative that will compete with vehicles like the Mahindra XUV700, Tata Safari, and Hyundai Alcazar. The CMF-B modular platform will be introduced to India, according to Renault. Additionally, the alliance will launch the CMF-A platform's electric variant in our market.
The Renault-Nissan alliance will be able to locally produce electric vehicles in the future thanks to the CMF-electric B's derivative, known as the CMF-B EV architecture. This platform will be both adaptable to the future and compliant with current and emerging safety standards. As well as electrification, it will support hybrid and electric vehicle powertrains.
The next-generation Duster SUV will be built for the Indian market on the CMF-B modular platform. By 2024–2025, the third-generation Renault Duster will be available in our market. A new 7-seater SUV will also be made in the nation using the new platform. The three-row Dacia Bigster concept, which is based on the CMF-B platform, had been displayed by Renault. The Bigster SUV's production version is anticipated to debut in the nation under the Renault banner.
Due to competition from Tata Motors and Hyundai, the Renault CMF-A electric platform will require extensive localization. Renault hasn't disclosed the two SUVs' technical specifications. The business is probably going to release new SUVs with a gasoline engine option. However, the business could also release the SUVs in our market with powerful hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid engines.
