Renault Kwid launch today – Watch Live Webcast

Renault Kwid live webcast launch

The Kwid is touted to revive Renault India from the recent sales slump.

It’s a big day for Renault India as it’s gearing up to announce the prices of what could potentially be its bread and butter model for a long time to come. With a sound business plan of developing the car from scratch in India and localizing it almost fully (98% of the components are sourced locally), the French automaker is confident of giving the market leader for decades, the Maruti Alto, a tough run for its money.

The Renault Kwid live webcast received a staggering 29 million views when the car was unveiled in Chennai earlier this year and the company would be hoping to at least match this internal world record when the prices are being announced in Delhi later today.

Bookings for the Kwid have already commenced across select dealerships in the country. Prospective customers can also book the car using a namesake smartphone app.

To recap, the Renault Kwid is powered by a 800 cc three-cylinder petrol engine which puts out 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque. Mated to a 5-speed transmission, the motor delivers a best-in-class fuel economy of 25.17 kmpl.
