Renault Twizy Launched In France


This might look like a futuristic concept car, but it is actually a full production Renault model called the Twizy, and it’s on sale now in France.

Twizy is a new, simple and effective solution for motoring in built-up areas and confirms Renault’s status as a truly innovative manufacturer. Customers have a choice of two motors and three equipment levels, with few options. The top speed of Twizy ‘45’ has been capped, which means that this lightweight quadricycle can be driven from the age of 16 (road safety certificate required) in France, while holders of a valid ‘B’ driving license are eligible to drive the 80kph version.

So although it looks kinda silly, the idea behind the car is actually quite bright. It will be a damn sight more fun than running around on a bicycle, but it will also be much more expensive!

* Useful options (doors, Twizy 45 Comfort Pack) and a long list of accessories (rear parking sensor, rear stowage, mp3/telephony kit, etc.).

TWIZY, THE JOKER IN THE CITY CAR PACK

Nothing like Twizy currently exists on the French market, and its numerous benefits will appeal to men, women, youngsters, tradesmen and traders alike.

Order books for Twizy are already open in France, while customers who pre-booked their car will be able to take delivery of their vehicle this spring. Test drives are available at the first European test centre in Boulogne-Billancourt, near Paris, France, and media test drives are due to start at the beginning of March, immediately after the Geneva Motor Show.
