Renault-Nissan is investing Rs. 4,000 crore to bring the CMF-B platform to India.
Renault is planning to re-introduce the Duster in India. According to a media report, the popular SUV could make its return by 2024-25.
The report states that Renault-Nissan is set to announce its next phase of investment in India, which will be close to Rs 4,000 crore. The fresh capital will be used to bring the CMF-B platform to India. It will be heavily localized to make it cost-effective.
Renault and Nissan are believed to be working on a range of models based on the CMF-B platform for India, with the Duster being one among them. In addition to the next-gen Duster, the new platform will also spawn a larger 7-seater SUV derived from the Bigster concept as well as an EV.
Localising the CMF-B platform would take time and so, in the meantime, Renault and Nissan will bring in a range of CBU models. Nissan has already announced the X-Trail for India and is evaluating the Qashqai and Juke SUVs. Renault plans to launch the Arkana crossover sometime in 2023. Moreover, the Megane e-tech all-electric hatchback is also believed to be on the cards.
