Renault reveals Kwid concept at New Delhi Auto Expo

Renault reveals Kwid concept at New Delhi Auto Expo

The New Delhi Auto Expo was the venue French car manufacturer Renault chose to reveal its new concept vehicle, the Kwid, which comes complete with its own drone.

Renault is hoping the vehicle will help to resolve one of the most frustrating elements of driving, not knowing why you are snarled up in a traffic jam.

The drone, known as the Flying Companion, can be launched from the car to scout traffic, take pictures of the landscape and detect obstacles on the road.

Gilles Normand, senior vice president and chairman of Asia-Pacific for Renault, said that the Kwid is the first concept car the manufacturer has released outside of Europe and is a sign of the brand's commitment to India.

The concept model is two-wheel drive, although it looks like an off-roader.

The Kwid is powered by a 1.2-litre engine, with a dual-clutch gearbox, and Renault has hinted that an electric motor may be used in the model.

It is just 3.6 metres long and has been designed to attract young customers in the nation customers interested in Renault. There are still no details on when the car will be put into production or how much it will cost.
