Watch: The Electric Renault Twin’Z Is Revealed


Yesterday, we were introduced to Renault’s concept Twin’Z, a car that will strongly influence a new production car from the French company next year, most likely the new Twingo.  If so, that means we are also getting a look at the platform under the all new smart ForTwo.

Now, to go along with the written word, Renault has released a video to show off the car lmore intimately, and also to hear why they thought it was a good idea to let famed British designer, Ross Lovegrove, have his way with the platform.

The Renault Twin’Z is classed as a city car, being 2″ shorter in length than the current US spec Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

The Renault has four battery modules, floor mounted in the middle of the car, that can power the EV up to 80+ mph, with an effective range of 160 km, or 100 miles.

After witnessing the car in motion first hand, we came away a little less impressed than we had been after just seeing the pictures, and reading the press release yesterday.

All that intricate 2D surface detail, and not a Glove Box, cup holder, or map pocket to be had. 😛

Wow that’s nauseating, but it’s a concept. “Four” batteries is interesting. Why? Would they sell it with multiple range/power levels?

“with an effective range of 160 km, or 80 miles.”

One of those 2 numbers must be incorrect. Is this range based on EU standards?

160 kilometers is correct, should read 100 miles not 80.

Thanks, fixed.
