Renault’s new electric two-seater, Twizy, arrived at the brand’s 22-strong network of Z.E. Expert dealerships.
The Twizys are now available for test drives around the UK, primarily at dealers with larger suburban and urban populations, in keeping with the car’s likely target customers and driving usage. The rest of the brand’s official network will have their demo and display vehicles on 20th April.
With on-the-road price from £6,690, it is the third of the French manufacturer’s electric vehicle range to hit the UK market.
The Twizy is 2.34 metres long by 1.24 metres wide and is designed for a driver and one passenger to sit in tandem. Full charge takes three and a half hours, giving a range of around 60 miles.
Renault’s Twizy is powered by a 13kW (17hp) motor with a limited top speed of around 50 mph.
