The Renault Kwid is a crossover city car produced by the French car manufacturer Renault, initially intended for the Indian market and launched in 2015. In 2017, a revised version was introduced for Latin American markets. The Renault City K-ZE, an electric car built on the Kwid, was launched in 2019 in China. The Kwid was developed under the project code BBA. It is the first car to be based on the new CMF-A platform jointly developed by Renault and Nissan. It is slightly longer but narrower than Renault’s smallest conventional vehicle, the Twingo with a high sitting position and a 180 mm (7.1 in) ride height. The car was designed by an engineers’ team settled in India led by Gérard Detourbet, a senior engineer, former mathematician described as “an innovation a minute” who led the development team for the first-generation Dacia Logan.
