Renault Twizy Launched in France

With a name that means TWIn + EaSY, no doors and small wheels, we don’t need to add the “Zero Emission” to the end of the Twizy for you to figure out that it’s an electric car designed for the city.

Renault has today announced that their smallest electric vehicle will be joining its Z.E. brothers on the French market.

There is a choice of two motors, with the base Twizy 45, which has 5hp and 33 Nm of torque being eligible for 16-year old to drive if they get the road safety certification. As the name suggests, it’s capped to only reach 45 km/h, but the bad news for you youngsters is that it costs from €6,990 plus the battery lease which starts at €50/moth. Still, wait a couple of years and it will be affordable, just like you would for any cool scooter.

If you are old enough to drive, the uncapped Twizy will provide you with 17 horsepower and is good for 80 km/h.

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.
