Renault Announces Tata Nano Competitor

Back in 2008, before the Tata Nano was launched and nobody knew that it would not sell very well, Renault announced that it was developing a competitor for it. However, after seeing that it didn`t do so well in the sales department, the French manufacturer seemed to have lost interest.

Well, now, according to, Renault is still interested in the idea, and they will using Nissan expertise to create not one, but two low-cost cars for the low end of emerging markets. One is set to cost around €3,000, while the other is €2,000 more. This means that even the cheapest of the two would still be considerably more expensive than the Nano, yet with a Renault (or Nissan) badge on the front, perhaps it will be more appealing.

They are scheduled to arrive in showrooms around the end of 2014, and these cars, unlike the Dacia brand which is now sold in Western Europe, as well as emerging markets, will only be available in countries where income is low. The cars will be built in India, and their launch will coincide with the launch of Nissan’s own low-cost brand - Datsun.
