French auto major Renault is looking to deploy its small car into the Indian market by using its Japanese partner Nissan' V-Platform.
Renault has ruled out cars like the Sandero, Clio and Twingo for India. The company claims these cars cannot be priced competitively if brought to India.
Renault Asia Africa Management Committee Executive Vice-President Katsumi Nakamura -
We have a partnership with Nissan and Nissan has a platform for such type of car (compact car) and we can use that platform. We have some discussion over this.
The first Renault car to come out of the Chennai plant would be Fluence sedan next year. Following that, Renault will launch the Koleos SUV.
