The Renault Kwid EV is one of the most anticipated electric vehicles in India in a long time. The Kwid EV is an affordable small zero-emission vehicle for commuting in and out of cities, and it could be the perfect car for consumers who want an EV but are constrained by high prices. Renault already sells an all-electric version of the Kwid, the City K-ZE, in China and the Dacia Spring in Europe. It instantly becomes the cheapest new EV on sale. Based on the same Kwid, the Dacia Spring, a rebadged form of the small hatchback, is now ready for a refresh.
The Dacia Spring EV is one of the most affordable EVs on the European market. The vehicle, which is built in China, is expected to receive a facelift for the 2024 model year, reigniting speculation of an Indian launch for the Kwid EV. Interestingly, earlier in January, Renault had hinted at its intention to launch a mass-market electric car in India, suggesting that an all-electric version of the Kwid hatchback could be coming to the country, which has a growing number of EVs. The demand for them is also increasing.

The Renault Kwid is one of the French automaker’s most successful offerings in India so far. In fact, although Renault has discontinued all previous models, the Kwid is still sold in the country. It’s not too much to think about the launch of a Kwid-based EV in the country. However, to achieve affordable prices, Renault will have to build the cars at the Alliance plant in Chennai, India, and source components locally.
When it comes to the range of the Dacia Spring EV, it draws its energy from a single electric motor that produces a peak power of 44 horsepower in the base version and can travel 230 kilometers on a single charge.
