Comparison of Renault K-ZE & Renault Kwid
Compared to the regular Renault Kwid, the City K-ZE electric car has undergone several changes to the basics of the electric motor and battery. The electric sunroof has a 33 kW motor tuned to a maximum torque of 120 Nm. The car manufacturer also claims that the car can be charged using a standard 220V charging port as well as a plug-in charging point.
Features of Renault K-ZE
The City K-ZE EV can be charged up to 80% in fast charging mode in just 50 minutes. On the other hand, slow charging mode takes at least four hours to fully charge the battery. The company also claims that the estimated range of an electric vehicle when fully charged is about 150 miles.
Specifications of Renault K-ZE
Aesthetically, the Renault City K-ZE is very much similar to the little Kwid car. In addition, it occupies several elements of the conceptual version. The company slightly modified the grille with a large diamond logo on the front. The design is complemented by elegant yet sharp LED headlamps. The Kwid EV also uses a separate headlight design which is becoming very popular. The profile of this SUV is reinforced with light, elegant wheels. The City K-ZE offers a lower ground clearance of 150 mm compared to the Indian standard version.
Renault K-ZE Interior
In terms of interior space, the K-ZE EV’s cabin is identical to the Kwid with Indian specifications. It comes with an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, 4G internet with navigation and voice control. The overall cabin layout also remains the same. However, K-ZE prefers a movable selector between the front seats rather than the center console, as seen in the AMT version of Kwid.
