Sources have informed IndianAutosBlog.com that Renault has concluded trial production of the new Koleos at the Chennai plant where celebrations are on after 100,000 petrol engines were made in record time. And its no coincidence that Renault has updated the Koleos chapter of its official website with tidbits on the car.
IAB readers have already been served with constant tidbits on the new Koleos. We were the first in this planet to bring auto lovers the first look of the new Koleos. Our reader Ragho was the first person to spot the Koleos testing in India. Prior to these details, we informed you that testing of the car had started. Recently we informed you that petrol engines will not feature on the India-spec model and broke the news of a September third week (tentative) launch.
Sources add that Renault could price the manual transmission Koleos at just under 19 lakh rupees (ex-showroom). Renault will show the car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September. We are also told that dealers will receive demo vehicles well in advance to conduct previews with their customer groups.
Renault India is serious about getting good traction with the new Koleos, but we'll have to wait and see if it achieves what it sets out to do.
