Electric Renault Kwid City K-ZE revealed at 2019 Shanghai Motor Show

Renault showcased the Electric version of the Kwid, called the City K-ZE at the ongoing 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. The electric version is based on the same CMF-A platform as the India-spec Kwid. The Kwid City K-ZE will go on sale in China later this year. As compared to the standard model the electric version gets fresh tweaks to accommodate the batteries and electric motor. 

Renault claims that the electric version can be charged via the standard 220V domestic and plug-in charging points. The City K-ZE gets a 33kW electric motor that produces 120Nm of peak torque. It is believed that in fast charging mode, the K-ZE charges up to 80 per cent in 50 minutes. Meanwhile, in slow charging mode, it takes about four hours. The company further claims that the electric hatchback offers a driving range of about 240kms. 

As for the front, the Kwid City K-ZE gets LED DRLs on either side of the grille, while the headlamps are placed below the DRLs. The profile will remain similar to the regular Kwid with the only change being the addition of alloy wheels. The rear profile could get a redesigned bumper and LED taillights for an upmarket design.

Inside, the Renault City K-ZE gets detailing identical to the India-spec Kwid, which includes an eight-inch infotainment system, 4G internet with navigation and voice control. The vehicle gets a boot capacity of 300-litres. As for features, it gets a quality control system, tyre pressure monitoring system and a reverse camera. 

The vehicle will be introduced in the European markets sometime in 2021. While there are no immediate plans for its India debut, it is believed that the electric version is likely to debut in the European market.
