2014 Brussels Motor Show: Renault Twizy Cargo

2014 Brussels Motor Show: Renault Twizy Cargo

This summer Renault announced that its 2-seat quadricycle city car - the Twizy, would lose a seat in order to be more corporate-delivery friendly.   And the Twizy cargo was born.

That car, clad with DHL logos, showed up this week at the 2014 Brussels Motor Show (yes, there is such a thing), where it will be on display until January 26th.  Looking at the design and the specs, it does seem like the little Renault could indeed be handy for "city" deliveries.

Access to the boot is from the rear via a lockable 90° door, and the cargo area is actually decently sized at 180l/75 kg.

The Twizy Cargo will be available in two trims:

  • Cargo (top speed of 80 kph/50 mph)
  • Cargo 45 (top speed of 45 kph/28 mph) - also of interest, thanks to only 4 kW of power you can drive it without a license - pizza boys rejoice!
Prices (excl. VAT) start at €6,750 ($9,150USD) for Cargo 45 and €7,350 ($9,960USD) for the Cargo 80.  Battery rental is separate and comes at €50 ($68 USD) a month.  Interesting factEven before the Twizy Cargo hit the European market, Renault was already selling 3 out of every 5 Twizys to corporate customers.
