After tasting success with its maiden compact SUV Duster in India, French car maker Renault is planning to launch the four wheel drive version of the vehicle before the start of the festive season this year.

Currently, Duster is available only in front wheel drive versions that curtail the off roading capabilities of the car but the company is already making 4x4 versions at its Oragadam factory near Chennai and exporting to other right hand drive markets like Britain.

The 4x4 version be priced between 10 lakh to 14 lakh but Renault believes there would be enough takers for that version and Duster will gain from lack of options in that category.

"Duster has been a phenomenal product and has opened up a new segment in India," said a senior official at Renault India. "India is a big contributor to its global sales and we are doing our ground work to launch the 4x4 version in this market."
