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.

According to the designers at Renault, the car will come in two-wheel drive instead of four, which means that it will be for city dwellers than rural ones.
