There is an unprecedented demand for Renault's recently launched small car Kwid and that seems to have put the maker of the car in a tough situation. The latest reports suggest that the French auto maker has ramped up the production of its Kwid in the country to meet the increasing demand.

A report of The Times of India states that the soaring demand of Kwid has forced the maker to increase the production. The Kwid with over 50,000 booking within a month of launch currently commands a waiting period of up to six months.

Launched in September, Renault Kwid has been priced starting at Rs 2.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Offered in four variants — Standard, RxE, RxL and RxT — Renault Kwid under the hood gets 799cc 3-cylinder petrol motor, which is tuned to churn out 53bhp and a peak torque of 72Nm with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The Kwid is the first car to be built on the CMF-A platform and offers the best-in-class mileage at 25.17kmpl. Renault Kwid will also get 1.0 litre and AMT (Automated manual Transmission) variants in India next year.
