Renault Twizy Price


In spite of its insane conceptual looks, this Renault Twizy is actually on its way to a showroom near you early ext year. And it’s already has a price tag and everything.

The Twizy is an electric-powered urban commuter, a four-wheel scooter with a steering wheel and a roof, which has a 17 hp AC motor that gives it a top speed of 50 mph. It is a nice tool for nipping around town, but like other cars of this type it looks absolutely ridiculous and undignified. Still, it’s better than a G-wiz since it’s a trendy thing.

Twizy goes on sale in the UK at the start of next year and will be manufactured at Valladolid in Spain. Base price for this vehicle starts form from £6,690. 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. You may also place your order online with a 20 quid deposit.

Specs and details of the car in the Renault press release:

Renault Twizy: affordable electric motoring, with on-the-road prices from only £6,690
Renault will have two versions of Twizy on display at the Barcelona Motor Show, both powered by a 17hp motor: Urban and Technic. With UK prices from only £6,690 on-the-road for arguably one of the year’s most eagerly-awaited vehicles, Renault looks set to send shockwaves through the industry, as well as 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.

Reservations for Twizy can now be made online at www.renault-ze.com
Customers can now pre-reserve their Twizy online at www.renault-ze.com. This requires a £20 deposit via a secure online payment module. Customers who pre-reserve their Twizy will be contacted on a priority basis when the car goes on sale with a view to confirming their order.

The renault-ze.com website is available in 38 countries and has already received more than five million visits, a figure which provides a dramatic illustration of the interest motorists are showing in the Renault Z.E. programme.

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.

Accessories for the Twizy lifestyle

  • An all-purpose bag with a capacity of 50 litres
  • Additional protection against the weather
  • A Parrot audio kit including Bluetooth connectivity, plus a USB connector, a jack socket and an Apple connector
  • Rear parking sensors
  • A range of customisation accessories (coloured alloy wheels, decals) enabling owners to personalise their Twizy
