India-bound Renault Kwid E-TECH EV launched in Brazil, check range and price

Renault’s all-electric Kwid E-TECH hatchback has gone on sale in Brazil for 142,990 Brazilian Real, or nearly Rs 23.20 lakh in Indian currency. The all-electric hatchback was initially introduced at the 2020 Auto Show as the K-ZE. From now on, the Renault Kwid E-TECH will be the cheapest electric vehicle available in Brazil. It will replace the JAC E-JS1.

Even while it shares many visual cues with the outgoing ICE Kwid, the all-new Kwid E-TECH is distinguished by a few EV-specific design characteristics. The car features a closed-off grille with a chrome garnish consisting of two strips located below the emblem, E-TECH badges, and newly designed alloy wheels.
