The production Kwid is now developed under the partnership between Renault and Dongfeng, a Chinese automaker. And the manufacturing of the Kwid EV will also be commenced in Dongfeng’s plant in Shiyan.
The EV hatchback is expected to come across by the end of 2020. For the Indian market, it might take another year to finally arrive. The primary price is predicted to be around 6 lakh.
For the regular Kwid, Renault currently brought in small updates across the range, which include driver airbags, ABS with EBD and seat belt reminder in order to boost sales. However, the attempt didn’t meet the initial expectation and the carmaker will pull out their next version this year.
