The island of Mauritius has become the first export market for the Renault Kwid, which is manufactured exclusively in Chennai, India.
Contrary to previous reports which suggested that the Kwid will enter Sri Lanka first, it is now learnt that Mauritius will be the hatchback’s first international market.
Renault has plans to launch the Kwid in African and Latin American nations as well. Other aimed destinations are Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, which together constitute the SAARC nations. The French automaker has carefully planned the export destinations, keeping in mind its offering.
The Kwid is an entry-level hatch and considering the economy of targeted nations, chances are high that the car will become immensely popular there too.
