Renault to exit diesel from next year

Renault

The Indian subsidiary of French automaker Renault will sell only petrol cars from next year. It will also launch products engineered specifically for India and not cars from its global portfolio. 
 
Announcing the decision to phase out diesel powertrains and concentrate solely on petrol cars once BS-VI norms are introduced in April 2020, Renault India Operations country CEO and Managing Director, Mr Venkatram Mamillapalle, said in Kolkata: “The technology that other carmakers are adopting initially will only just meet the emission norms. When the next phase of emission norms is introduced, these vehicles will have to be upgraded and that could cost an additional Rs 2 lakh per car. It won’t make economic sense for a customer to pay Rs 3 lakh more than a petrol car to buy a vehicle powered by diesel,” he explained. 
 
Mr Mamillapalle was in Kolkata to launch of Triber, a modular seven-seater compact car developed for India by the Renault engineering team in Chennai and design team in Paris. The next three cars the company plans to introduce till 2022 will be similarly co-developed. “They will meet the expectations of Indian customers, both on styling and affordability,” he said.
 
Triber also marks a shift from Renault and its associate firm Nissan sharing a common platform to create diverse products to developing products on separate platforms.
