In Brazil, the Renault unit in the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba is obviously not left out of the plan, as the Renault “E-Tech 100% electric days” was also the stage for the launch of the Kwid E-Tech, the 100% electric vehicle that puts the electric revolution on Brazilian streets. The Kwid E-Tech pre-sale started in April and was a great success. In less than two months, the first batch of 750 units sold out. The profile of customers who bought the model have monthly income between R$10 and R$20 thousand. With an urban range of 298 kilometers, according to Renault, the cost of a kilometer driven by the Kwid E-Tech is R$0.06, against R$0.41 for an internal combustion vehicle.
