According to reports Renault is considering to launch the new Megane sedan in India by 2017. Renault is doing quite well in India, thanks to the rapid popularity of the affordable Kwid hatchback with a crossover persona. Renault is currently in process of setting up its plant using Gandhara Nissan’s plant and is likely to start producing locally assembled vehicles by 2018. Renault will possibly start their operations with Duster SUV and Kwid hatchback in Pakistan, and if they are able to sell well, one may expect to see the likes of Megane sedan in our country as well.
