Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations says Pulse is important to Renault’s product portfolio. Several product enhancements have been made to make Pulse even more attractive and exciting. Competitive pricing is backed by an attractive finance option to further elevate its value proposition as a strong offering in the premium hatchback segment.
Diesel Pulse is powered by a 1.5 litre K9K dCi engine delivering 64 PS power and 23 kmpl mileage, while Pulse petrol is powered by a 1.2 litre engine which delivers 76 PS power and 18 kmpl mileage. Both engines are mated to a five speed manual transmission. AT is not on offer as of now. Standard warranty is also reduced from 80,000 kms / 4 years to 50,000 kms / 2 years.
The news of new Pulse launch comes a few days after it was reported that Renault India has not produced Pulse hatchback at their plant in over 4 months now. This was due to low sales. With the launch of updated Pulse, Renault India hopes to bring back the sales of Pulse on track.
At present, Renault India network presence stands at 157 sales and service outlets to make its cars accessible to more customers. Renault looks to further expand in 2015, which will be one of the fastest ramp ups by an auto manufacturer in India. Renault Secure offer Roadside Assistance for enhanced ownership experience. Their next launch will be Lodgy MPV, scheduled for April 2015.
