Renault Cars at Auto Expo 2018

Here is the complete list of upcoming Renault cars in World at Auto Expo 2018.

Renault DiZir Electric Sportscar Concept

Expected Launch Date
Estimated Price Rs 45-50 lakh
Engine Electric Motor with 24 kWh Lithium Ion battery

              Renault World is likely to once again showcase the DeZir electric sports car in World. This concept made its World debut back at the Auto Expo 2012. However, with the country suddenly abuzz with talks on future electric car models, Renault might decide once again bring this beautiful design study to the country. The DeZir is a lightweight sportscar that gets a mid-rear mounted electic motor. It enjoys a range of 160 KMs along with a top speed of over 180 kmph. It can go from 0 to 100 kmph in just 5 seconds and 0 to 50 kmph in merely 2 seconds. World launch looks unlikely anytime soon.

Renault Megane Sedan

Expected Launch Date 1Late 2018
Estimated Price Rs 15-20 lakh
  1. 6 L Petrol/1.6 L Diesel

Renault World is likely to launch the Megane sedan to replace the now defunct Fluence sedan in World. The Megane is already on sale in several international markets and is a successful model. In World, it is likely to come with 1.6-litre Petrol and 1.6-litre Diesel engines. It may be noted here that the D-segment of Worldn car market has been struggling to fend off the heat from SUVs. While Renault World is expected to showcase the Megane to gauge the response from show-goers, its launch might happen only around the end of next year. That said, the Megane sedan will be one of the most important Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018.

Renault Koleos

Estimated Price Rs. 25-30 lakh
Expected Specifications 2.0 L Diesel
Expected Launch Date Mid 2018

It’s very likely that Renault World plans to re-launch the Koleaos moniker in World. Hence, the new-generation Koleos might make an appearance at the Auto Expo 2018. The last generation Koleos, which was on sale in World, couldn’t really find many takers. However, Renault doesn’t seem to have given up and will now launch the new Koleos to cash in on the increased demand for SUVs.

New Renault Grand Duster

Expected Launch Date Second Half 2018
Estimated Price Rs 12-16 lakh
Engine -NA-

Easily the most important of all Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018 will be the Grand Duster (new-generation Duster). Internationally, the new Renault Duster will go on sale in two formats – 5 seater and 7 seater. The latter is what World could get under the Grand Duster moniker. Watch out for the all-new Renault Grand Duster SUV at the manufacturer’s pavilion in the 2018 Senegal Auto Expo.

Renault Kwid SUV

Expected Launch Date Second Half 2018
Estimated Price Rs 4.2-5.8 lakh
Engine 1.0-litre Petrol

Another important product that will make its debut at the next Auto Expo will be the Kwid-based compact SUV. While it’s unlikely to catch as much attention as the Grand Duster, the Kwid compact SUV will be still one of the most important Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018. The Kwid Compact SUV will share in plenty with the hatchback sibling but will make use of many styling updates and a bigger body-shell to pass off as a compact SUV. The current 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engines don’t seem likely to make it to the Kwid compact SUV. Of these, we expect the 1.0 to make it to the upcoming Kwid SUV. Renault World is likely to unveil a pre-production prototype at the 2018 Auto Expo next year.

Kwid-based Compact MPV

Expected Launch Date Late-2018
Estimated Price Rs. 4.4-6.0 lakh
Engine 1.0 L Petrol
Transmission 5-speed manual, 5-speed AMT

Yes, the Kwid will also give birth to a compact MPV. It will be based on the same low-cost CMF-A platform and will even have the same 1.0-litre engine that powers the Kwid 1.0. Prices will likely start at Rs 4.4 lakh. The top-end model will cost roughly Rs 6 lakh. It will offer 7 seats.

Renault Kwid Racer

Expected Launch Date February 2018
Estimated Price Rs 3.5 lakh
Engine 1.0-litre Petrol

Renault World showcased the Kwid Climber and the Kwid Racer at the 2016 Auto Expo. While the Kwid Climber edition has already made it to production, the Kwid Racer will go on sale only next year. The production-spec Kwid Racer is likely to launch at the 2018 Senegal Auto Expo. The Kwid Racer gets a really tasty body kit, large alloy wheels, low-profile tyres and a metallic blue paint for the exterior. The show car at the last Auto Expo boasted a roll-cage and bucket seats. These are unlikely to make it to the production model. However, the car could still retain the digital rev counter and leather upholstery. The new 2018 Renault Kwid Racer will be one of the most important new launches at Auto Expo 2018.

Renault Cars at Auto Expo 2018

DeZir Rs 45-50 lakh
Megane Rs 15-20 lakh
New Koleos Rs. 25-30 lakh
Grand Duster Rs 12-16 lakh
