Over 50,000 bookings for the Renault Kwid have been reported to be registered since its launch on September 24, 2015. Renault's entry-level hatchback and contender to the Hyundai Eon and Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is powered by a 799cc 3-cylinder DOHC motor producing 54PS/74Nm. With a claimed fuel efficiency of 25.17kmpl, which makes it the most fuel efficient petrol car in India and a price of Rs 2.56 lakh (ex-Delhi) for the base trim, the car makes a compelling case for itself and from the figures reported, the Indian customers seem to warming up to it.
Renault had also launched the Kwid app to allow prospective customers to book the car or take a 'virtual tour' to get a preview of its features and cabin. Deliveries have already started and the production is in a full swing to ensure faster deliveries, says Renault. Currently, there are 180 sales and service outlets and Renault is expected to launch 100 more outlets by 2016.
Sumit Sawhney, CEO and managing director, 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.”
