Recently, Renault India achieved a remarkable milestone with its leading MPV, Renault Lodgy. The car was driven from Delhi to Mumbai in less than one tank of fuel, and covered a distance of 1,388km, using only 32.91 litres of fuel, returning an incredible fuel efficiency of 42kmpl. The drive was commenced from Delhi, with some stopping points at Jaipur, Udaipur and Vadodara.

The key idea behind this initiative was to prove the quality, reliability and functionality of the MPV, together with its outstanding fuel efficiency. The fuel tank was sealed at the starting point and remained sealed throughout the drive, and officials from Ernst & Young ensured this, and were present throughout the entire drive.

Under the hood, Renault Lodgy is powered by a 1.5 litre dCi engine, capable to deliver 108bhp at at 4000rpm and 245Nm of torque at 1750rpm. Since its launch in April 2015, the Lodgy has marked the company’s foray into the MPV segment in India and has won 8 awards at prestigious automobile industry platforms. The car is enabled by Ergo-Drive technology that means the car is conditioned to offer superior acceleration and power, ease of ride and handling along with great mileage.

This is not the first time that a car manufacturer has conducted a fuel efficiency run, as many other automakers like Maruti, Hyundai and Ford have organized similar runs. In such drives, acceleration and high speeds are not followed, the car is driven at a comfortable speed between 40 - 50kmph, with sufficient torque and in turn delivering great fuel efficiency.
