Renault will stop offering diesel cars in India once the BS-VI norms kick in on 1 April 2020. Over time, Renault will gradually move away from diesel engine options in the international market as well. Diesel sales have been slowing down in the global market. In the Indian market, by the end of FY-19, the share of diesel-powered vehicles in the market is likely to drop by about 19 per cent.
The latest updates emerged at the global unveiling of the Triber compact seven-seat vehicle in the country. It is believed that Renault will focus on the development of the EVs as part of its mid-term plan for 2022. A couple of months back, Maruti Suzuki had announced its plans to stop selling diesel cars in the country post 2020. More details in this regard will be known in the days to come.
