The Renault KWID prototype was recently presented at India's New Delhi Motor Show, showing off not just a car but a drone to go with it.
The drone is specifically designed for reconnoissance and includes a GPS system and a camera. When not in use, the Renault KWID's "flying companion" has a designated spot on the car's roof. The drone has automatic as well as manual controls that can be accessed by a driver through a built-in tablet panel on the car's dashboard.
The design of the concept car itself is quite interesting, with dramatic butterfly doors, a bold yellow and gray color scheme and an unusual texture on its interior. Renault describes that design is fun and the tech components are "targeted at meeting the needs of young customers in these markets."
