Automobile manufacturer Jeep India has commenced production of locally-assembled 2021 Jeep Wrangler in its Ranjangaon joint venture manufacturing facility.
Accordingly, the move comes just one month after the Jeep brand announced its comprehensive go-local strategy.
"The Jeep Wrangler is the second out of the four localised products we committed to launch in India," said Partha Datta, Managing Director, Jeep India.
It should be noted that Jeep India already manufactures the 2021 Jeep Compass facelift at the Ranjangaon facility.
"We wanted to make the world's most recognised SUV even more accessible to our Indian customers and we are pleased to be able to meet their aspirations."
According to the company, 2021 Jeep Wrangler is now available for pre-booking before going on sale exclusively in India on 15 March in 26 dealerships across the country.
Since it is a locally assembled product, the Jeep Wrangler is expected to be priced from Rs 55 lakh, ex-showroom. Currently, the SUV prices begin from Rs 63.49 lakh.
