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.
