Mehta said that more products from the Mahindra-Renault products stable would be introduced in the Indian market from the proposed greenfield plant coming up at Chennai with a production capacity of four lakh units per annum.
Production at the Chennai plant was expected to commence from 2009.
Launched in select cities in April, the company sold 2,786 units in May and 2,386 units in June.

Mumbai : The C-segment is buzzing with choice in the car market. Here are the contenders - Mahindra Renault Logan 1.6, the Ford Fiesta 1.4 and the Chevrolet Aveo 1.4. If you are confused about which car is the right one for you, then it's time to clear the air.
The Logan does come with a 1.4 engine which is way cheaper than anything else in this comparison. So, it would definitely make that one the value for money package.
But the 1.6 scores better because it's in the right price category. With the Logan 1.6, it matches the 1.4. So, what you're getting is a better engine, better acceleration figures at the price of a 1.4 engine.
This car is extremely spacious and it has a large boot, which is a plus point, especially for the Indian market. The engine is refined and plus it handles well. This car is quite an all-rounder and it's really tough to pin any shortcomings on this car.
But the Logan makes up for that with a boot that is as big as the Civic's and has space enough to match a Corolla and it's 85 bhp, 1.6 litre dutiful engine seems a steal at the price.
If you want to combine it all (Driving pleasure, Refinement, Space, Comfort) and luxury but want cracking value for money, then close your eyes and go in for the Logan.
