Renault has managed to sell 9,743 units of the Kwid in March, and the total figure now stands at 41,205 units sold since launch. It has contributed to a 159.8 percent increase of Renault’s overall sales as compared to the figures in March 2015.

The figure is expected to increase in the coming months as Renault has introduced a nightshift to increase production to 1,600 units per day, so as to clear the 110,000 pre-orders that they have received. Also in the pipeline are the Renault Kwid 1.0 and Renault Kwid Automatic variants.
