Renault Twizy Z.E. Concept

Twizy Z.E. Concept is an all-electric vehicle aimed primarily at busy city dwellers who need to pick their way through the urban jungle. Every day, they juggle work commitments with a busy social life, so efficiency, speed and simplicity are key.

The ultra-compact dimensions of Twizy Z.E. Concept (2.30m in length, and just 1.13m wide) ensure that it is nimble enough for urban use. The four-wheel arrangement, open bodywork and a seat format which puts the driver and passenger behind one another express Twizy Z.E. Concept’s distinctive character.

With its futuristic, pearlescent white bodywork, Twizy Z.E. Concept clearly belongs to a new era of urban mobility. As opposed to a conventional car, the body colour wheel fairings are not spherical but octagonal, and cover the tyres entirely. Along with the pearlescent white and blue hub caps, they form a pleasing, harmonious design in which the wheels can no longer be seen rotating. Instead, the only visible movement is that of the hub caps, so Twizy Z.E. Concept appears to glide gracefully and silently, along the road.

Twizy Z.E. Concept is powered by a 15kW (20hp) electric motor. This develops 70Nm of torque, and combines comfort with responsive performance at all engine speeds. Twizy Z.E. Concept can accelerate at a similar rate to a 125cc bike, and pulls away briskly from standstill. With a top speed of 75kph, Twizy Z.E. Concept will also be in its element in suburban traffic.

    This vehicle looks wicked sick!! I would totally get one if I lived in the city or a place where it did not rain or snow. The Renault Twizy Z.E. Concept would be such a convenience to parallel park with! This is going on my list!

    I remember this car! There was this television special…okay, not a special, but this television thing about this vehicle! The only downside is…how are overweight people going to fit? What is the weight capacity? …maybe it will force people to lose weight…

    Almost looks like a suped up golf cart. But for those in live in cities where parking spaces are at a premium, this might not be a bad way to go. However, if you have a large family or you are a large person, this might be something that you’ll want to bypass.
