French carmaker Renault is looking to cut the waiting period of its highly successful Kwid hatchback from three months to just one month.
The Kwid is Renault's most successful model yet and Renault has sold over 70,000 units of the entry-level hatchback since its launch in September 2015.
Speaking to the media, Renault India CEO and Managing Director Sumit Sawhney said, "First half of the calendar year (January to June) has been very good for us. We have witnessed good growth. Till June, I think we sold about 62,000 units. And in July, we sold about 12,000, I think the total will be 74,000 units. It is a milestone for us."
The Kwid is currently powered by a 799cc, three-cylinder engine producing 53bhp and 72Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Renault is now preparing a new variant of the Kwid for launch. The new Kwid variant is powered by 1.0-litre engine which is paired with an AMT gearbox. The 1.0-litre Kwid is expected to launch later this month.
