The new Renault Twizy will be available this week with prices starting below £7000. The Twizy is offered with white bodywork and a choice of Urban Blue, Ivy Green or Flame Orange panels for the roof and sides.
Running costs for the Twizy are almost non existent; a 3.5 hour charge (approx 60p) could take you sixty miles. Standard equipment includes 13” wheels, two gloveboxes, 3 metre long charging cable, heated tinted windscreeen, Z.E. onboard computer and dashboard with econometer and battery consumption display. Renault will rent batteries for around £40 per month.
The Renault Twizy weighs 881lb with batteries included. It is a fantastic city car and would suit a London lifestyle. It is extremely agile with a turning circle of just over 11ft and once the central driving position is mastered the Renault Twizy is capable of maneuvering through the smallest gaps and parking just about anywhere. The new Colour version will sit between the Urban and Technic and will be priced from £6950; this is £260 more than the Urban and £450 less than the top of the range Technic.
