Renault Kwid gets over 85,000 bookings

The Renault Kwid has managed to get over 85,000 bookings in less than four months. The A-segment hatchback enjoys a long waiting period; over 10 months for a few variants.

The Kwid with the SUVish looks has worked very well with first-time buyers. The car comes with an excellent entry price, which has helped the French manufacturer get a foothold in the segment that is dominated by Maruti and Hyundai.

The Kwid uses an 800cc three-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 53bhp and 72Nm. The features list on the hatchback is almost nonexistent on the base trim, with the car omitting even the power steering. The top-end variant, however, gets a touch-screen music system with navigation.

Renault’s sales volumes in India have catapulted with the launch of the Kwid. The company sold 10,292 units last month with a growth of 160 per cent, compared to 3,959 units sold in December 2014. The growth story for the company is expected to continue, as the production for the next few months is already sold out.
