In the month of September, India became the first market to receive the new Renault Kwid, a product aimed at emerging markets, which was put up for sale from the 3,500 €. The demand has been so great, that their buyers must wait several months to receive it.
Chen in the month of September was released commercially, Renault estimated that the demand of the Kwid would be high. Analysts also claimed that this new product aimed at emerging markets could become a event sales in that market, primarily because of its low price, which is equivalent to some 3,500 euros at current exchange.
And they were not wrong since currently the waiting list for those who would like to purchase reaches six months. With these data in hand, a few doubts remain that the Renault Kwid will mark a turning point for the French house in the indian market, achieving nothing less than 25,000 bookings in its first week of release. But his demand is not stopped, even in its more sophisticated version, and faces.
Six months of waiting for the new product from Renault.
The Renault Kwid is offered in India in four trim versions called Standard, RxE, RxL and Cxr, all of them equipped with an engine block, 3-cylinder 799cc of displacement, which produces 54 horsepower and 72 Nm of torque, in combination with a manual gearbox of 5 speeds.
To put the Kwid into context and to understand the because of their high demand, the product more accessible that Renault sold in this market until now was the Renault Pulse, a hatchback that took as the basis of the old Micra, which is sold at the equivalent of about 6.800 euros, i.e. almost double of what it costs to buy the new Kwid.
This new product from Renault should be measured against rivals such as the Hyundai Eon and Maruti Alto, which leads for its habitability superior. India is only the beginning, as the Kwid will come soon to Iran, while will be produced in Brazil to replace the veteran Renault Clio, which still remains in production.
