Weeks after Jeep announced its premium range of SUVs in India, we have come to know of something more exciting. The company is planning to launch a new SUV under 10 lakhs in India.
Jeep’s idea might disrupt the automobile market in India and it will put out a huge competition to the already existing compact SUVs like the Renault Kwid and Ford Ecosport.
Jeep Compass to be Launched Soon
Jeep also mentioned that it is planning to launch a new SUV within the 15-20 lakhs price margin. Expected to be named the compass, this SUV will compete with the likes of other mid-range SUVs in India.
The compass will be the first Jeep product to be completely manufactured here, while the next one would be the SUV under 10 Lakhs in India.
Jeep Plans to Tie-Up with Indian Companies
Jeep’s new SUV under 10 Lakhs in India would be manufactured with the help of Indian companies. Mike Manley, the head of the Jeep Brand, said that Jeep is looking forward to working with companies in India.
Manley also hinted the possibility of a tie-up Tata Motors, since it is an industry leader in India. However, he did not mention other specifics in his interview with the Times of India.
The new Jeep SUV under 10 Lakhs in India will be designed and developed according to the needs of the Indian customer. It is expected to be a compact SUV, which is currently the hot section in the automobile market.
Jeep’s new product ideas prove that the company is working hard to establish its stand in the Indian market, and there is a possibility to expect more new vehicles in the coming years. Of course, it would be a dream for most Indian petrolheads to own an SUV with the Jeep tag.
