New Delhi: French automobile manufacturer Renault on Wednesday announced that it is recalling around 50,000 units of its Kwid cars in India to rectify a faulty fuel system.
Renault India said it is conducting a pre-emptive and voluntary inspection of select 0.8 L variants (800cc) of Kwid that were manufactured from October 2015 to May 18, 2016.
A fuel hose clip will be added to the recalled cars. The company will also evaluate the overall functioning of the fuel systems so that the fuel supply is continuous.
The company further said that owners of the affected cars won’t be charged any cost for the inspection.
The Renault Kwid with 0.8 L engine was launched in September 2015 with price ranges between Rs 2.64-3.73. Following the good sales in the country, the company in August 2016, launched Kwid with a 1.0 L engine, which is priced at Rs 3.95 lakh.
