Renault's Twizy is more agile than a car with an acceleration comparable with that of a scooter
With UK prices from only £6,690 on-the-road, Renault's Twizy looks set to send shockwaves through the corridors of rival city car and scooter manufacturers. In higher specification Technic trim it will cost £7,400. The monthly battery lease cost for both versions will be £40 including VAT for a 36 month/4,500 miles per year agreement.
Twizy makes city motoring easier and safe:
Twizy gets around town faster than a traditional city car thanks to its unprecedented ultra-compact dimensions which also allows easy parking
It offers two occupants – sitting in tandem, one behind the other – greater safety compared with a two-wheeled vehicle, thanks to an extensive list of active and passive safety features
Twizy makes getting round town more enjoyable:
It is more agile than a car, whilst its acceleration performance is comparable with that of a scooter
Twizy’s electric motor accelerates smoothly and silently, while torque is immediately available
Its wraparound bodywork and side deflectors ensure enjoyable open-air motoring, protected from the elements
The no-fuss, practical all-electric vehicle:
Twizy’s battery fully charges in just three and a half hours using a domestic electrical supply via a spiral cable stowed behind a flap at the front. Twizy’s low weight (450kg, including the 100kg battery) directly helps its operational range of 62 miles (NEDC standard cycle). In everyday use, this figure can vary depending on driving conditions.
