Renault Kwid concept comes with a flying drone on its roof [VIDEOS]

Renault Kwid concept made its public debut last week at Auto Expo in New Delhi, India.

The Kwid is company’s first concept ever to be unveiled outside Europe and was created with input from Renault Design India.

The futuristic crossover features short overhangs, a two-tone grey and yellow body, increased ride height and big alloy wheels.

Power comes from a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine linked a dual-clutch EDC gearbox, sending power to the front wheels. The concept has no electric motor, like we are use to seeing on different design studies, but it was created in such a way, that an electric motor and batteries could be fitted in as well.

Interior is just as futuristic with cocoon-like cabin.

The real highlight is the so-called “Flying Companion” which takes off from the rotating rear portion of the roof and can be controlled either manually or via automatic mode with pre-programmed flying sequence using the GPS location.

As far as we know this is the first concept with a drone.

The flying quadrocopter drone would launch from the car’s roof and could be used for taking landscape pictures, detecting the incoming road obstacles and traffic jams. The drone could also relay live video back to the car.
