      Renault to launch Fluence & Koleos in India soon. EDIT: Fluence launched.

      Some good news.

      Renault is soon going to come to India with its cars.

      In the run-up to the planned launch of its first products -- luxury sedan Fluence and crossover vehicle Koleos -- in mid-2011, the company has charted out an aggressive dealership network expansion plan in India, aiming at 70 outlets by
      2013.

      They also seem to have launched the Renault India website. Looks promising.

      I have seen Fluence doing testing in Chennai many times, car looks good and it should be a winner if priced aggressively. Every time it as seen without any camouflage ,But the big question here is how are they going to market their cars?? Will they be sold along Nissan or separate dealership will be opened for Renault??

      If it is going to be sold in separate dealership then it would be difficult for Renault to open up dealership across India, by the time they are spread across India it would be too late. Already they are making a very late entry!!

      Updates on Renault Koleos and Fluence

      • Renault Koleos launch may get pushed to early 2012. Original plan for late 2011 but supply of some parts (shared with Nissan) hit by Tsunami
      • Renault starting with 14 dealers in 12 cities when Fluence launched in June 2011. Plans 100 dealers in 55 cities by 2012. Very ambitious
      • Fluence diesel gives 21.84kpl in ARAI drive cycle
      • Fluence price will be revealed on May 23rd. My guess is Rs 12 lakh for petrol and Rs. 14 lakh for diesel.
      • Petrol motor with CVT v. impressive, diesel has adequate pep but sluggish at low revs

      As per reports, Koleos will have the same engine doing duty in Logan and Micra. We can expect a better tuned engine from the same stable

      Nice catch avinash....

      They could have brought in a better engine for the diesel variant....all cars running with the same engine looks weird (Logan, Micra and now Fluence). Also I see rear AC vents are missed out in Diesel variant, they could have added this feature....Dual climate zone is first in this segment!!

      Let's see how Renault prices this car, with only 14 dealers across India we cannot expect this car to sell in good numbers
