Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
The entire Jeep range would eventually make it to Indian roads.
According to a conversation on the radio in Mumbai with Kevin Flynn, the CEO of FCA India, the company is set to introduce the Jeep range of products at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. The highlight of the showcase would be the newest versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep models are expected to be launched as well, around that time.
The aforementioned two nameplates will come first, while the others may have to wait a year more. Jeep has announced that a new C-Segment SUV would be brought to India in the next few years, while the Renegade was also part of the plan presented in 2012.
The plans of launching the Jeep SUVs in India was first revealed by Fiat in late 2012, when the company divulged their intention to bring a collection of foreign brands that included Abarth and Mopar.
The Abarth brand is introduced with the Abarth 595 as the debut product, while the Abarth Punto is scheduled for market launch on October 19. Jeep will be introduced as the second FCA-owned brand in India, while Mopar would be the third to enter the sub-continent.
