Hatchback Kwid crossed the 3.5 lakh sales milestone in India in the midst of the COCID-19 pandemic. The model continues to be a major disruptor in the mini-car segment, according to Renault India.
The Kwid strongly resonates with the ideology of Make in India due to 98 per cent localisation, said the company. To make the car even more accessible for customers, a new RXL variant is launched with a BS6 compliant 1.0L powertrain in MT and AMT versions. The new RXL variant is priced, at Rs 4.6 lakhs for the MT and Rs 4.48 lakhs for the AMT version.
“The global launch of the Kwid was in India and showcased the important role of this country in Groupe Renault’s growth ambitions. Kwid has been an important contributor to our progress in India. With more than 3.5 lakh customers we are overwhelmed and grateful for the faith that our customers have bestowed in brand Renault. Kwid which was a breakthrough product in terms of design, innovation and modernity at the time of launch, continues to be a game changer for us,” said Venkatram Mamillapalle, country CEO and managing director, Renault India operations.
