Renault India has announced that customer orders for the Kwid hatchback have crossed over 50,000 in less than a month of its launch. The car was launched for the Indian market on September 24 and has been priced at Rs 2.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and deliveries have now begun after some delay.
The Kwid is available in six variants and five colour options with a single three-cylinder 800cc petrol engine that produces 53bhp and 72Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual.
Commenting on the milestone, Sumit Sawhney, CEO and MD, Renault India, said, “I thank Indian customers for their phenomenal response to Renault KWID and I am grateful for their trust in the Renault brand. Deliveries have commenced across India to celebrate the festive season with our customers. We have ramped up the production and are taking concerted efforts to further accelerate production to enable faster deliveries.
“The growing acceptance by first-time buyers indicates that Renault KWID is truly an aspirational product, offering an outstanding value proposition. Together with first-time buyers, we are also seeing new consumer trends across urban and rural India,” added Sumit.
