Renault Produces More Greener Cars

With the majority of the Renault cars being ecologically friendly and economical, the original Kwid together with its limited-edition – Neotech – are meant to save lots of cash on fuel.
BS6 came into operation last year in April setting standards for the latest permissible emission levels. And for the Renault Kwid engine to carry this badge, it must be environmentally safe. Even though the engine capacity is small and the power output is equally proportional, the Variable Speed Automatic transmission system uplifts Kwid to another level.
For any car to be BS6 (Bharat Stage 6) compliant, its exhaust gases have to be controlled to meet the set emission norms. Besides the norms, BS6 compliant cars should have real-time emission tracking during Real Driving Emission time. These cars use petrol as their primary fuel to propel the engine.
Among the stringent norms, this Renault Kwid has complied with include emission of 60mg/km of nitrogen oxide and inclusion of safety features like driver and co-driver airbag. Other features are reverse parking sensor, speed alert system, ABS and Electronic Brake Force Distribution.
To make the hatchback more environmentally safe, most parts are made of recycled plastics and can be given a second life.
