Dacia Spring and Renault Kwid: the 7 differences game!

Like it or not, the Dacia Spring has everyone agreeing on its price: 17 090 € before ecological bonus. It also embeds all the necessary equipment (Apple & Android compatibility, air conditioning, etc.) and its autonomy is largely sufficient for urban journeys. A success in short, which translates into excellent sales. Dacia announcement 40,000 orders since the beginning of the year. But you should know that this little boil was already present in the world well before 2021. Overview.

It all starts in Renault Kwid

The Renault Kwid, stylistically speaking, is an almost exact copy of Spring. But you certainly don’t know her and that’s to be expected. This version is designed and marketed in India since 2015, already ! She then moved to South America (with part of the production in Brazil) and South Africa in 2017. The mini city car is based on the CMF-A platform, shared between several global manufacturers, which suffered some setbacks during active and passive safety tests …

The Kwid is finally restyled in 2019 and then borrows this style of SUV. The optics and the grille are redesigned to give what will be the design final of the Spring. Another size difference: this model is only sold with a small three-cylinder in-line 54 hp or 68 hp.

To give you an idea, in November 2021, Renault passed the milestone of 400,000 Kwid sold in the Indian market alone. But no homologation possible in Europe, the car must be partially reviewed.

Another copy: the Renault K-ZE

As explained previously, the Kwid is therefore a thermal car. Before launching the Spring under the Dacia crest, Renault will therefore inaugurate a Electric Kwid on … the only one chinese market in 2019. We must follow, we warned you.

Called K-ZE, it is thus similar in all points. Same style with the plastic protections, it just doesn’t have the same badge. Electrical mechanics is identical and the battery has undergone slight modifications to comply with the WLTP cycle.

It is especially the chassis that has been revised to pass the homologation. Indeed, the Kwid received the extreme rating of zero out of five stars a few years ago. The Spring, she has not yet had her results but they will be better, rest assured.

In the end, this Renault K-ZE will stop his career months later, in the spring of 2020 following the end of a market-specific partnership. This is how the Dacia Spring will be born, the new queen ” low-cost »Of the electric car in Europe.
