French automaker Renault has announced the launch of new RXL variant of its entry level hatchback Kwid with BS-VI engine at a starting price of Rs 4.16 lakh in the domestic market. The carmaker also announced that Kwid sales have crossed 3.5 lakh units in the country.
The new RXL variant comes in two versions, MT and AMT, priced at Rs 4.16 lakh and 4.48 lakh, respectively, Renault India said in a release. ‘With more than 3.5 lakh Kwid families, we are overwhelmed and grateful for the faith that our customers have bestowed in brand Renault. The model continues to be a game changer for us,’ said Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations.
Renault claims Kwid offers low cost of ownership owing to 98 per cent localisation of the car. The car maker also rolled out a slew of offers, which include an EMI-based ‘buy now pay later’ scheme, which can be availed either at the dealership or through the company’s website or its mobile app, according to the release. There are also offers across the product range including cash offers, exchange benefits and finance at a special rate of 8.25 per cent. These are complemented by additional loyalty offers for its existing customers.
Renault India has also rolled out additional benefits for doctors and police personnel, under its ‘Care for Caregivers’ programme, as a gesture to thank the efforts of the COVID warriors in the country, the company said.
