Renault Kwid Concept that was unveiled at the Delhi Auto Show is the first car to come that launches its own drone from a hatch in the roof, which could help the driver scout ahead for traffic, take aerial photos and identify the obstacles on the road.
This drone called Flying Companion is kept in a rotating rear portion of the Kwid’s roof when not in use. In automatic mode, the device flies along a pre-programmed flying sequence using in-built GPS, while in manual mode, the drone is controlled via a table built into the dashboard of the car.
The Kwid will feature a 1.2-litre turbocharged engine with a dual-clutch transmission, allowing the owner to drive in automatic or manual mode, and it could also come with an electric motor.
The driver is sat in the centre of a row of three, allowing the car to be used in both left-hand and right-hand drive markets.
According to Renault, the Kwid will hit the market within two years, with particular focus on the Indian market.
