Renault Twizy Selling Well in Germany

Europeans have really taken a liking to Renault’s electric offerings, with Germany in particular registering impressive sales figures, for niche cars like EVs. During the first five months of the year, more than 1000 Twizys have been sold in Germany - a large chunk of the 4,500 total European sales figure.

It is also worth noting that, according to, the German customers preferred the more powerful, faster and more expensive version of the Twizy in the detriment of the 45 km/h version which costs €6,990 ($8,600). The 80 km/h version costs slightly more, at €8,490 ($10,500), but it seems that it is the better choice of the two. Even after factoring in the cost of the battery rental program, which detracts between €50 - €75 ($62 - $93) from your bank account every month, the car is still a good deal, as running costs are insignificantly low.

Renault is the automaker with the most extensive range of EVs of any manufacturer in the world. Their ZE range currently has three models on sale (Fluence, Kangoo and Twizy) and a fourth (and very important) car, the Clio-sized Zoe, set to be launched in the third quarter 2012.
