Renault is all set to unveil its Kwid-based EV called the City KZ-E on April 16 at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. Showcased as the K-ZE concept at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the all-electric City KZ-E is the result of a collaboration between Renault and its Chinese partner, Dongfeng. The electric hatchback will go on sale in China soon and subsequently be launched in other markets, including Europe, soon.

Although information about the City K-ZE’s powertrain is scarce right now, it is expected to offer a real-world range of around 200km. Expect it to feature fast charging capabilities as well.
