Renault small car for India is Pulse, unveil on 29th October

     Renault’s much awaited small car for India will be 'Pulse' (codename B58). In our earlier post we had mentioned that the Renault’s mall car for India will be ‘Modus’ as Renault Modus was spied testing in India. But the small car from Renault for India will be an entirely new car based on Renault-Nissan V (versatile) platform. Renault’s global partner Nissan has also built a small car ‘Micra’ on this V platform. So expect to see lot of component sharing between Nissan Micra and Renault Pulse.


     Since there is sharing of platform, the Renault Pulse will also be powered by the same petrol and diesel engine from Micra. The 1.2L 3 cylinder petrol engine produces Ps while the 1.5L diesel motors produces 63 Ps. To differentiate from Micra, Renault will give a brand new styling to the Pulse which is expected to have the French essence. The odd shaped grill with Renault’s diamond logo will be the highlight of the car. Interiors and some mechanical switches are likely to be borrowed from Micra.


     
The Renault Pulse will be unveiled at the beginning of Indian Grand Prix at Buddh International Circuit. Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn will be present at the unveiling of the car and beginning of Indian Grand Prix to show the company’s solidarity towards India’s first Formula 1 race. However the car will be commercially launched at the Auto Expo 2012 in January 2012.

  1. Cool design, though it resembles the micra. The pricing seems to be on the higher part, but I hope that it put up good standards.
