2012 Renault Twizy news, pictures, and information
Twizy, an unprecedented urban mobility solution. Sales begin in December, 2011.Twizy is an unprecedented solution for city motoring. Its nimble handling prompts parallels wîth the world of scooters and motorbikes, yet the standard of safety and comfort it delivers is close to that of a four-wheeled vehicle. Twizy stands out as a symbol of the 'Renault 2016 - Drive the Change' plan and is available in a choice of two versions:
- In certain countries, Twizy 45 will not require a driving licence.
- A driving licence will be required to drive Twizy.
Two equipment levels ('Úrban' and 'Technic') were revealed in Geneva. A third –'Twizy Color', which highlights Twizy's fun side – will be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This version is available in blue, red or green in the form of decals for the roof, sides and inside the car for the upholstery and glovebox. This livery can be rounded off by the fitment of particularly striking, colour coordinated, diamond-effect aluminium alloy wheels. The cost of the door option – €550 (inclusive of VAT, for customers who reserved their vehicle) – mirrors Twizy's affordable price positioning.
In built-up areas, some 87 per cent of European motorists do not exceed a distance of 60km per day. Given that the NEDC combined cycle ranges of Fluence Z.E and Kangoo Z.E. are homologated at 185km and 170km respectively, and at 100km (urban cycle) in the case of Twizy, the range of Renault's Z.E. vehicles is perfectly suited to daily use.
Range will vary, however, as a function of several criteria, including speed, type of journey, how the heating system or climate control is used and driving style (sporty, normal, ecodriving). Únlike their internal combustion-engined counterparts, electric vehicles are the most economical when driven in heavy traffic in towns. Renault's customers will benefit from a range of in-car and remote tools and technologies designed to help them optimise the range of their vehicle.Source - Renault
