This would be the company's second time at India's Auto Expo, having already participated at the Auto Expo 2014.

At EICMA, the company showcased - amongst other models - the India-bound Renegade Sport S model. It has been reported earlier that three products under the Renegade moniker - the Renegade Sport, Renegade Commando, and Renegade Classic - will be launched at the Auto Expo 2016. Going by the company's statement, these models will be modified to suit the Indian customer.

Earlier this year, the company set up its first office in India in New Delhi, sparking rumours that a festive time sale is in the pipeline. However, with a confirmation regarding the Auto Expo 2016, it is now clear that the first half of 2016 will see the first UM products hit Indian roads.
