Upcoming new Indian car launches of 2021

With a whole year ahead of us, it’s time to have a look at the upcoming car launches of 2021.

This list is based on rumours & hearsay, and thus should be treated as a tentative list only.

Car models costing over 55 – 60 lakh rupees, and many fully-imported-cars (CBUs), have been excluded from the list. Reason = Low relevance & commitment to the marketplace.
