Renault sells over one lakh Kwid units in India

Renault sells over one lakh Kwid units in India

Renault Kwid’s success story is not new in the country. Supporting claims with figures, the automaker has reportedly sold over one lakh Kwid units in the country in just about 14 months of presence in the country. A while ago, Renault officials spoke about their expectation to comfortably reach the one lakh sales figure mark before the end of 2016. The numbers especially do not sound too big when you have a recent addition in form of a bigger 1.0-litre variant with an optional AMT trim, the demand is bound to touch new heights.

In September this year, Sumit Sawhney, CEO and MD Renault India stated that, in the period between January to August 2016, the company has sold 87,000 cars out of which 65,000 units were Kwid alone. With the newly introduced AMT option with a 1.0-litre engine, the demand is set to reach a whole new height, more so when exports begin to SAARC countries - Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

Renault Kwid is available in two engine options - 799cc three-cylinder petrol engine which generates 53bhp of power and 72Nm of torque, while newer one comes with a 999cc three-cylinder petrol engine which generates 67bhp of power and 91Nm of torque. Five-speed manual transmission comes as standard on both the models, but customers can opt for an AMT option in the bigger engine version. The AMT version is positioned in straight line of competition with the Maruti Suzuki’s Alto K10.
