Carmaker Renault India today launched sedan 'Scala' in both petrol and diesel variants, priced between Rs 6.99 lakh and Rs 9.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
"Scala will consolidate what Renault has brought to India. It will enter a very competitive segment. With the launch of this car, we are completing the first cycle of introducing five products in India," Renault India Managing Director Marc Nassif told reporters here.
The company has already launched small car Pulse, premium sedan Fluence and sports utility vehicles Koleos and Duster.
Scala is powered by 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines and has 5-speed manual transmission. It has 80-85 per cent local content in parts.
Talking about the company's overall sales, Nassif said: "We expect this year to sell 30,000-35,000 units. In 2013, we will try to sell one lakh units."
The company will start export of Duster to the UK by the end of this year, he added.
When asked about new products at the lower end, Nassif said: "We have many many things. We will definitely look at the segment below Pulse in future."
Renault India will, however, not launch any new car next year, but only refreshes and variants of the existing models will be introduced, he added.
The company is currently selling 600-1,000 units of Pulse every month.
