Renault Kwid on the road in India

Renault Kwid on the road in India

Deliveries of Renault Kwid have begun in India. The compact hatchback is aimed at the Indian A-segment, which accounts for about 25% of the market.
The car is expected to be a strong contender in that segment thanks to its SUV design, fuel efficiency, as well as functionalities important for the Indian consumer, including a large trunk and a spacious interior.

The car is built on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s Common Module Family A architecture, which covers the smallest and most affordable category of cars in the CMF family. The Alliance’s CMF system of modular vehicle architectures allows the company to build a wider range of vehicles from a smaller pool of parts, resulting in more savings and greater value for customers.

Innovation for everyone

High-growth countries of Brazil, Russia, China and India represent more than 30% of the combined sales of the Renault-Nissan Alliance – up from 1% when Renault and Nissan partnered in 1999.

The key to success in these challenging markets? Modern, robust cars that are truly affordable to first-time buyers – manufactured in clever, “cost-breakthrough” ways that significantly reduce the use of scarce natural resources.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and the BRICs

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and the BRICs

Since the Renault-Nissan Alliance began in 1999, emerging markets have become a pillar of growth for the auto industry. In 1999, Brazil, Russia, India and China(the “BRICs”) represented only 8% of the total industry volume. In 2012, these four countries represented 36% of global vehicles sales. China, which registered 600,000 car sales in 1999, became the world’s biggest car market last year with about 18 million units. Renault-Nissan sold 8.1 million vehicles in 2012, with about 30% generated from the four BRICs. The Alliance accelerates this emerging market expansion enabling each partner to gain brand awareness with millions of customers aspiring to own their first car. But each market presents unique challenges and for the Alliance, the approach differs from country to country.
