French auto major Renault said it will open bookings for its upcoming compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Triber on August 17 in India. The vehicle, which will be launched on August 28, can be booked online or through an authorised dealership by paying Rs 11,000, Renault India said in a statement. Despatches of Triber have started to reach Renault's over 350 dealerships across India, it added.
"India is a key market for Groupe Renault. We have a clear objective and strategy to accelerate our expansion in India by doubling the sales volume to 2,00,000 units annually over the next three years," Renault India Operations Country CEO & MD Venkatram Mamillapalle said. Renault Triber will play an important role in the company's expansion plans and will set new benchmarks in terms of space and modularity, he added.
The seven-seater Triber, which is less than 4 metres in length, will be powered by a 1-litre petrol engine and has been specifically designed for the Indian market, the company said.
