Striking, compact and unique, the Renault Twizy is unlike any other vehicle on the road. Seating two and dispensing with conventional fuel, it’s an ideal city run-around with plenty of character. And, with three trim levels to choose from – Expression, Dynamique and Cargo – it can accommodate your tastes and driving requirements with ease.
It’ll come as no surprise that the Renault Twizy – as an electric vehicle – is one of the cleanest vehicles on the road. Emitting no CO2 and with a top speed of 50mph, it’s best suited to driving around town – and its compact size means you can park it virtually anywhere. All models are rear-wheel drive, making this a fun and flexible option, while acceleration is nippy thanks to the electric motor. A range of 62 miles makes light work of the daily commute too.
There’s no mistaking the Renault Twizy’s futuristic looks. With a buggy-like appearance and rounded front, two-seat layout and eye-catching wheels, its looks set it apart from other vehicles. The sides are open to the elements as standard, but you can add scissor doors and zip-on windows for protection in inclement weather. The whole dynamic look is finished with a range of colours, ensuring this is a funky and fun model in every respect.
Technology and safety
With its minimalist approach, the Twizy doesn’t waste energy on luxury. The technological prowess of this model goes into its driving dynamics and zero-emissions capability, ensuring you can focus 100 percent on the ride. Safety, of course, is key though, so no compromises are made there. There’s a front airbag to minimise injury in the event of an impact, and four standard disc brakes ensure optimum responsiveness when you need to slow or stop. The front seat has a four-point seatbelt, while a three-point belt in the rear gives your passenger peace of mind.
It’s true that the Twizy is cosy, but for many owners this only adds to its appeal. Behind the wheel you’ll find well-presented essentials such as the digital dash, 12V socket for charging devices and gloveboxes for storage. Your passenger sits behind you in the Expression and Dynamique models, while in the Cargo trim, the rear seat is converted into additional storage space. Bluetooth is available as an option too, should you wish to stay connected while out and about.
