UK pricing and specifications announced for the Renault Twizy Colour, and it costs £6,690 with monthly battery hire from £40.
Now that’s a good price for a car, but can you call this thing a car? Renault refers to it as an urban compact two-seater. It is powered by electricity and offers 57Nm of torque for a top speed of 50 mph. Full charge takes 3.5 hours.
The electric two-seat Twizy comes in Colour, Urban and Technic trims. The Colour is £260 more than the entry-level Urban and £450 less than the top-of-the-range Technic. It features white bodywork and a choice of Urban Blue, Ivy Green or Flame Orange panels for the roof and sides. Black bodywork is also available.
Twizy’s upholstery and glovebox and can also be specified on colour-coordinated, diamond-effect alloy wheels which cost £350. Colour-coordinated half-scissor doors will be available for £455,
Standard equipment on Twizy includes 13-inch wheels, two gloveboxes, one of which is lockable, 3 metre long charging cable, heated tinted windscreen, Z.E. onboard computer and dashboard with econometer and battery consumption display. Safety and security have also been paramount throughout the project, as is evident from the three-point seatbelt in the front with additional lateral restraint, three-point seatbelt in the rear, front airbag and immobiliser and steering lock.
