New car launches in India in July 2024

After a relatively quiet period in the car industry, July 2024 promises an exciting lineup of new vehicle launches. This month will see the debut of a new SUV, two premium electric vehicles, a luxury sedan, and a luxury hatchback. Curious about what’s in store? Read on to find out.

Mercedes-Benz EQA

Kicking off the month’s launches is the highly anticipated Mercedes-Benz EQA. Scheduled for unveiling on July 8, this electrified version of the GLA will be available in a single, top-spec variant known as the EQA 250+. It will feature a 70.5kWh battery pack powering a single electric motor, delivering an impressive range of 560km on a full charge. The EQA 250+ is expected to offer a power output of 188bhp and 385Nm of torque, making it a strong contender in the electric vehicle market.

New-Generation BMW 5 Series

The eighth-generation BMW 5 Series, revealed for the Indian market last month, will be launched on July 24 alongside several other models from the BMW Group. For the first time, the 5 Series will be available in the Long Wheelbase (LWB) version, initially offered only in the 530Li M Sport variant. Although BMW has not yet confirmed the exact specifications, it is likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine with a mild-hybrid system. An eight-speed automatic gearbox will handle transmission duties. More details about this model are available on our website.

Nissan X-Trail

The Nissan X-Trail, set to share showroom space with the Nissan Magnite, will finally launch later this month. This three-row SUV, which was showcased alongside the Qashqai and the Juke in 2022, will be brought to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). Key features of the new X-Trail include split headlamps, dual-tone alloy wheels, LED taillights, a digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, an engine start-stop button, and an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) suite.

Mini Cooper S

Following its global debut in September 2023, the new Mini Cooper S will have its prices announced in India on July 24. The India-spec version will arrive in the S variant, equipped with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine producing 201bhp. Bookings for the new Cooper S are currently open on the official website, and customers can choose from five colors: Ocean Wave Green, Sunny Side Yellow, British Racing Green, Chilli Red II, and Blazing Blue.

Mini Countryman Electric

Joining the Mini Cooper S and the new BMW 5 Series on July 24 is the Mini Countryman Electric, the second EV in the Mini range. Bookings for this model are also underway, with six colors available for selection. The 2024 Countryman EV will be powered by a 66.45kWh battery pack, which will come with both single-motor and dual-motor configurations. Although Mini has yet to announce the specifications for the India-spec version, the car is expected to come equipped with customizable LED DRL signatures, a circular OLED display, Mini Experience modes, Digital Key Plus, electrically adjustable front seats with a massage function for the driver, and a fish-eye in-car camera.
