Renault Twizy Hits Up The Local

Renault Twizy Hits Up The Local “Biblioteca”


What to do when you have a small quirky EV like the Renault Twizy?  How about driving it in all the places it’s not supposed to be and film the whole thing?

In the past we have seen Renault’s diminutive NEV take strolls through offices, fast foot restaurants and even an IKEA or two.

So why not a university’s faculty of science library in Lisbon, Portugal?

The Twizy Urban 80, has a top speed of 80 km/hr (50 mph) and a range of 100 km (62 miles), which is achieved via a 6.1 kWh lithium battery located under the front seat and a 13 kW (17 hp) electric motor that also delivers  57 Nm (42 lb-ft of torque).

Too bad they didn’t use a white one for the film, “Oblivion”– it would have fit right in.

Dang.. I wanted to hear him ask “Donde esta la biblioteca”

(off the record, I drove an electric moped through the cubicle farm in our Engineering office)

And he should have squealed the tires on the Carbon tile in the courtyard. You know.. left a “carbon footprint”.


I’m not sure the Twizy belongs in the NEV category. I’m not sure in what category it belongs to.

Twizy is the future of the human transportation. Whole cities should be built around this kind of car, just love it

Didn’t people say that about the Segway…?

Segway is a substitute for walking for the lazy obese.

Twizy is real means of personal mass transport, especially when integrated into countrywide mass transit system.

Maybe longer way for US than for some European and advanced Asian countries.

The Segway could go 12mph. That’s much faster than walking.
