The past week was one that invoked nostalgia. We kicked off our week with the launch of the final installment in Mercedes’ 15 launches for 2015 Indian portfolio and we took a look at the company’s journey over the past year. We got a detailed look at Tata’s upcoming hatchback, the Tata Zica and witnessed a milestone in the Indian automotive industry as cab franchise Ola paired up with cellphone manufacturer Oneplus to deliver company’s exclusive products in a zippy 15 minutes.
Mahindra e2o’s 4-door avatar was spied during a road test, which came in at an opportune time, considering the escalating pollution conditions in Delhi. To tackle this situation, government roped in 4,000 buses, in addition to entertaining the ‘Odd-even rule’. Speaking of pollution, Volkswagen India has announced that it will be re-launching its halo car, the Beetle in India on 19th December.
Tata motors announced that it will be discontinuing the production of its Vista and Manza models. Next up, Jeep imported its Renegade compact SUV in India, which could be an indication that Renegade might be launched in the Indian market soon. The Renegade compact SUV, while being loaded onto an aircraft, while Maruti Suzuki YBA was spied in Rajasthan. Hyundai announced that it will be hiking the prices of its cars by Rs. 30,000 from January 2016 and following into its footsteps, Maruti announced that it would be increasing the prices of its cars by Rs. 20,000. Speaking of Maruti, India’s largest automaker also launched a special ‘Premia’ edition of S-Cross at Rs. 8.99 lacs.
