Sensing the enthusiasm at the Duster launch and the 4000 unit pre bookings, Ford and Maruti must have stepped up their efforts to launch the Ford Ecosport and Maruti XA Alpha SUVs in India.

The Duster and the forthcoming Nissan Sunny based Renault’s sedan are very important products for the French car maker as it has seen little better than brand makeup with the Fluence and Koleos and had some sales pick up with the Renault Pulse hatchback. Now the car maker wishes to make India as the touchstone of its global success. Even during the Renault Duster launch as well, Marc Nassif, managing director, Renault India has clearly indicated that India is a major market for the car maker and its success in here will decide its global success.
