The race towards zero-emission has been going on for some time in the automotive industry. With this in mind, the folks over at Renault decided to turn one of their models, the Renault Kwid, into a fully electric vehicle. The result is quite amazing. Renault has managed to design a car that is small, adaptable and efficient.
The car itself is not just an internally modified variant of the original Kwid. The electric Kwid has also undergone visual changes that now fit its new eco-friendly personality. The headlights, taillights, fog lights and front bumper have been replaced with new versions. In addition a new set of rims has been fitted. An added badge signals the eco-friendly status of the car. While the differences may be small, they are enough to form a new personality for the Kwid. Visually speaking the Renault Kwid is a stylish vehicle.
One of the most interesting features remains the electrical charging plug. The interesting thing about it is its position. The plug is cleverly hidden behind the vehicle’s front diamond logo. The Kwid is a beautiful looking car. Its curvy design lines give it a futuristic look. The added rims add more style to the car’s personality. Overall, the Kwid seems like a vehicle fit for operation in a vast number of areas and situations. This vehicle is designed to be adaptable. This versatility is one of the reasons that make the Renault Kwid a best buy.
The electric version of the Kwid will launch at first only in China, where Renault is already testing prototypes of this vehicle. Should the model prove successful, Renault also plans on introducing the Kwid to the Brazilian and Indian auto market. For some of the other markets Renault has partnered with Nissan and Mitsubishi in order to develop a series of zero-emission models that will share some technical aspects while having distinct identities.
No matter how you look at it the electric variant of the Renault Kwid is an efficient vehicle. The aspect of the car is more than pleasing, which together with the added efficiency make this car a best buy. Its adaptability makes it a valuable asset for anybody that wants to own a vehicle for almost all possible driving conditions. Even though no price has been officially announced, it is bound to be close to that of the regular Renault Kwid.
