Due to the Chennai floods, the production at Renault-Nissan’s plant was stopped, leading to increase in the waiting period of its successful model, Kwid. It is expected that the waiting period may touch 10 months in some cities and the bookings have crossed 70,000 mark.
Renault has dispatched 5,195 and 5,469 units of Kwid in October and November respectively. With no announcement from Renault regarding increase of production for Kwid, it may take more than 10 months to deliver the Kwid to the 70,000th Customer, estimating 5,500 deliveries per month
Renault Kwid has received huge response from customers because of its unique styling (SUVish) and segment first features like touch screen infotainment with navigation.
