Renault Fluence E4 coming out in November
The base model of Renualt Fluence, is soon going to have its upmarket variant in India. The new Renault Fluence is expected to come out in November this year. The new Renault Fluence diesel would have same features the E4 petrol version. The feature list would include beige interiors, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, auto headlamps and twin-zone air conditioning.
The diesel Renault Fluence, with additional features, would be priced higher than the current variant available in the Indian market. The Renault Fluence E4 diesel is expected to fall in the range of Rs. 14 lacs, thus making it about Rs. 80 thousand pricier than the current variant. Renault Fluence E2 Diesel comes at the price of Rs. 12.99 lacs.
The current variant of Renault Fluence comes with features like black interiors, manual transmission and manual air conditioning. The new variant with added features should do good to Renault, as the Fluence's competitors too, are offering advanced features in the same price range. The rising demand of Diesel cars in the Indian market should further benefit the French automobile company.
Renault stepped into the Indian market in May this year, with just one car in the offering. It has sold over 700 units of its sedan Fluence till now, with which the company is content. However, the company has bigger plans and strategies for future, and it recently launched its SUV Renault Koleos in the Indian market. Renault will launch five new cars by the end of next year, and it will launch the mini SUV Renault Duster in the first half of the next year.
