Mahindra and Mahindra has expressed its interest in building the Renault hatchback Sandero in India. The company already has Logan in India as an entry level sedan in the country and plans to launch more hatchbacks and sedans in the country.

“We do not have anything specific on the anvil but we are open to a tie-up with another company for manufacturing small cars as well,” Anand Mahindra said. “Our vision is clear that we want to be a dominant utlity vehicle player globally but like our involvement in other segments shows we are willing to participate in the greater eco system of the sector through partnerships,” he added.
