Renault India delivered its commitment of revolutionising the entry car segment in India with Renault Kwid. It has so far sold 1,10,000 units since its launch about a year ago.

With Kwid, Renault achieved localisation levels of 98% at launch, the highest ever done by a global auto manufacturer in India and became synonymous with the “Make in India” mission.

To celebrate the first anniversary of the “Make-in-India” Kwid, Renault embarked on a drive from Delhi to Paris. The Kwid travelled through 13 countries covering 18,996 kms.

The drive started from India Gate at a temperature of 25 degrees and was driven in areas of stark contrast, going as low as -25 degrees, through Myanmar, China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Belgium, before entering France.

Through the 45 day drive, Kwid negotiated a mix of different challenges in the form of snow-clad roads, sub-zero temperatures, monsoons with heavy rains and floods and places without traversable roads. The Kwid also registered a top speed of 174kmph on the autobahns of Germany.
