Renault India has confirmed that it will conduct the ‘worldwide premiere of a Renault concept car’ at the 2014 Auto Expo. The company has not teased or released any images, and has not bothered explaining either.
While we’re not sure whether this is for the lower or premium segments, Renault’s future plans includes an ‘A-Entry’ car in India that will sit below the Renault Pulse to compete with the Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon.
According to past media reports, the Renault A-Entry would be a differently styled Datsun I2 (the concept version of which also premieres at the Expo), sporting Renault-designed body panels, lights and interior, sharing core components with the Datsun. The concept car that Renault has announced could possibly be this A-Entry model.
Besides the concept car, Renault would have two product facelifts (Duster and Fluence – though they don’t say that), one product upgrade (Renault Koleos with a two-wheel drive stripped of most equipments) and one new limited edition.
