Renault India Eyes a Comeback with New Launches in 2024

Renault India, which struggled with a lackluster performance in 2023, has a few new launches scheduled for 2024 as part of a massive comeback strategy in the Indian car market.

Although Renault did extremely well in India during its initial years, however of late Renault’s poor sales were mostly ascribed to a stagnant range amid fierce competition, in an industry where innovation and refreshment are crucial. Many new cars were introduced to the Indian market, and prices were fiercely competitive, pushing Renault’s aging model into the shadows.

Renault is introducing two new-generation vehicles, two SUVs, and one electric car as part of its attempt to win back market share. The new models – the Arkana and Megane e tech, will target varied niches in the Indian market. Renault is putting resources into localizing the CMF B platform for its vehicles made specifically for India. It is also examining the viability of launching the Arkana through the CBU route. The electric Megane e tech is also being evaluated for the CBU route, where it would face off against the likes of the Kia EV6.
