Renault Twist Concept by David Cardoso

The designer responsible for the Audi Hydron study and the Cobalt coupe has now created a concept for a small Renault city run-around, dubbed the Twist. The future model is meant to take up the space between the Twingo and Renault Modus MPV in the carmaker’s future model range. Envisioned as a direct competitor to the Mitsubishi i-Miev, Renault’s Twist concept is designed as a small electric city vehicle.

The futuristic concept features a large sloping front with a glass roof for added visibility. The back is done in a typical Renault fashion: a vertical rear window and a bulbous trunk, just like the previous generation Megane. A unique feature for the concept is the roof spoiler that flows elegantly out from the lines of the rear quarter panel.

The stop lights at the rear are also adjusted to Renault’s current line, with its “L” shape that tapers from top to the bottom. Although the concept looks really good, we can’t shake the feeling that it looks like a Twingo RS concept. It has double rear exhausts that come out of the rear bumper like the Clio RS, red painted brake calipers, large alloy wheels and a color similar to what Renault Sport uses.

The nose of the car features a curbed black strip that ties the unique vertical headlights together. David Cardoso also saw fit to equip the concept with fog lights and a number plate, which make it ready for the road.

We like this concept a lot so all that is left is for Renault to actually build it.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
