Much has been speculating about whether the small Renault Kwid presented earlier this week in India, eventually come to European markets, and if so may be under the umbrella of Dacia, the low cost brand Renault. This position would have its certain logic, since it is very common between the two marks; without going further in Europe known as Dacia Duster is known in Latin America, among other areas, such as Renault Duster.
But this time it will not be so and finally the new Renault model will not be renamed Dacia and positioned in its range just before the Sandero. He was the same president of Renault-Nissan, Carlos Ghosn, who clarified this in a statement to Indianautosblog during the presentation of the model. Ghosn said: “There will be a badge Dacia in Kwid … there will only be a badge Renault”
According to statements by Carlos Ghosn only see the Kwid with Renault diamond.
Ghosn also took the opportunity to shed some light on the matter of which countries will come Kwid Renault. He said that instance Renault will focus on India country that has its production before export to more markets in development or even the global market first.
There seems to permanently close any doors, talking in terms of markets. For this he stressed that the Kwid is built on the basis of CPM-A platform, developed with a clear global vocation for Renault-Nissan alliance . The use of this platform allows the new utility of the diamond to meet safety standards worldwide, as although in certain areas, such as India, ride ABS or ESP, are elements that can be installed to strengthen security Model and become compliant with European law.
