Renault Pulse Petrol launched at Rs 4.25 lakh
Sensing the imminent rise in diesel prices and following an attempt to put an entry level model, Renault India has launched the Renault Pulse Petrol at a price tag of Rs 4.25 lakh. Notably, the French car maker had launched the only diesel model of Pulse hatchback at a price of Rs 5.99 lakh. Now that the Pulse is available in petrol and diesel options, it is believed that the Nissan Micra clone could trigger sales. Interestingly, the Renault Pulse petrol launch has been a silent launch in India.

|Renault Pulse RxL Petrol||Rs. 4.99 lakh|
|Renault Pulse RxZ Petrol||Rs. 5.55 lakh|
However, it was all slated to happen, but how sooner was unclear. But Pulse Petrol launch has made it sure that a small car cannot sustain with only diesel variant and a low priced entry level petrol variant is a must. Auto critics are also of the opinion that a price tag of Rs 4.25 lakh still sounds costly for such a small car and a more decent price tag could have done the miracle for the car maker. As per various reports, the petrol Pulse is powered by 1.2 L, three cylinder 80 bhp engine snatched from Nissan Micra.
