Just a few days ago we witnessed the revelation of the new Renault Kwid E-Tech 2024a vehicle totally focused on consumers who are looking for a car for touring, but that is also zero emissions and is sold at a fair price.
In From zero to 100 We had the opportunity to talk with Dimitri Castigliathe marketing director of Renault Mexicoand we do not hesitate to question him about what this new launch means for the automotive industry.
Renault Kwid E-Tech 2024: The ideal car to brand new in 2023
Despite maintaining the classic silhouette of the predecessor, the Electric Kwid It includes interesting features that undoubtedly make it a unique model. Its selling price is one of its highlights.
However, we cannot fail to mention other details such as the height of the vehicle with respect to the ground, the ample space in the cabin and a 290-liter trunk, all of these features are ideal for riding in the concrete jungle.
“The great advantage that Kwid E-Tech has is that we have a true compact SUV, with high ground clearance, angle of departure and attack, that is very important for day-to-day life on the streets of Mexico”
For those concerned about charging, renault has solved this very cleverly, integrating a home charger that can be plugged into a 110-volt outlet.
“I like to compare it to the way we treat our phones. You arrive home after a day of moving around, going to the children’s school, to work, to the supermarket, plug it in, while you have dinner, finish the day with your family, and the next day it is one hundred percent charged.”shared Castiglia.
Electric cars, how to prepare?
We couldn’t stay without asking Dimitri Castiglia about his advice for drivers who are ready to make the transition from a conventional car to an electric one, and true to form, he gave us a simple answer: there is nothing he prepared for.
The manager assures that the fact that the French manufacturer has resolved the charger issue has caused those that are ready to debut with a zero emissions such as the Renault Kwid E-Tech 2024 don’t have any kind of worry.
As if that were not enough, he pointed out that one of the proposals of this model is easy handling with simplified loading, which is complemented by a set of technology and safety as part of its equipment.
Electric car and gasoline car, which one to choose?
Understanding the popularity of Renault Kwid In the Mexican market, we couldn’t help but ask what is the best option to choose if you are going to buy a new car.
First of all, it is important to understand that both models, both the gasoline and the electric one, are intended for different audiences, therefore, from the proposal to the price, it is different.
Although at first it may seem that the expense of a electric car is much higher, we must consider interesting aspects such as the regular services that the car must undergo.
“You can do easier maintenance, you do the maintenance during the 5-year warranty that the car has, each service for $899, not only is it a differential from a conventional car, but also a price differential compared to other electric cars”
Dimitri Castiglia on the maintenance of the Renault Kwid E-Tech 2024.
As if that were not enough, the saving of each kilometer is ideal, being up to 80% cheaper if we compare it with the cost per kilometer of a car that uses gasoline as fuel, as detailed by Castiglia.
Currently this electric from the French manufacturer faces competitors such as the SEV E-Wan Cross and of course, the JAC E10x.
