2013 Renault Twizy | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the 2013 Renault Twizy. Renault Twizy is one brand new car from Renault that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Renault Twizy.
Renault’s Twizy city electric vehicle went on sale in UK showrooms Friday, and the French automaker saying a less powerful version will be available for sale starting next January. The 17 horsepower Twizy, which has a top speed of about 50 miles per hour and can be recharged in less than four hours, starts at 6,690 British pounds ($10,600 U.S. at today’s exchange rates). That low price is offset by the fact that buyers must also rent the car’s battery for 45 British pounds a month under a three-year contract that allows for 4,500 miles a year of driving. Other options include £545 for “scissor doors.” The Twizy is 92 inches long, or about a foot shorter than the Smart ForTwo.
To promote the Twizy, Renault has partnered with DJ David Guetta. The car appeared in his “Where Them Girls At” video and is now showing up in the promotional clip for the song “Alphabeat.” Independent drivers are also taking test drives in Ibiza. You can see videos of both down below. On one surface of the Renault Twizy have a mid engined, rear wheel drive car with instant torque and a Renault Sport tuned suspension. In addition to this, it has the equivalent of 17 horsepower. None of those statistics would keep car’s Steve Sutcliffe from getting to the bottom line, which was to observe if he could make the Twizy drift.
Renault remains tight lipped about predicted sales figures for any of its electric cars, but Heiron did confess that “sales of the Nissan Leaf show that there is currently a fundamental problem with electric car sales. It may have 60 per cent of the pure electric market, but that’s only 1000 odd cars in the UK. Nissan have also been talking to us about battery hire as a way of reducing the purchase cost.”

2013 Renault Twizy Interior and Exterior :
By having a length of 2.34 meters and 11.24 meters in width is provided in two seats that will be available in three trim levels namely urban, color, technique and two variants of power. Twizy with the lowest speed supported 5HP and a top speed of 28mph which was not originally planned for the UK, but the category is intended for young people in the UK since 2013.
In addition, the French presented a new version for the Twingo Gordini and the Twizy model. This Renault Compact received new range LED lamp units and a redesigned bumper. Under the bonnet, people at Renault have set a new petrol engine of 1.2 liters and 115 hp or a 1.6 liter diesel with 130 bhp. The highlight of the stand was Renault Zoe, the electric version now built in series, able to provide a range of 210 kilometers, largest currently on the market. Depending on the weather, autonomy may drop to 100 km – 150 km, if temperatures are negative or the car runs exclusively urban.
With a length of 2.33 meters and 1.19 meters wide, Twizy boasts with a mass of only 450 kilograms, of which 100 kg is the battery. Equipped with 125×80 R13 front tires and 145×80 R13 rear, this electric vehicle has a turning radius record of only 3.4 meters. The two passengers have seat belts, four points for the driver and three points for his friend. With a power cable of 3 meters, Twizy can be easily charged from a normal outlet and needs only 3.5 hours to be ready to go.
Andy Heiron, head of EV programme at Renault UK, said the new type approval category would start from January 2013. It will include quadricycles with a limited 28mph top speed, weighing less than 350kg unladen. According to Heiron, “there are still details to be finalised by the government, and there will be a basic practical and theory test involved.”
There are two versions available. One actually requires a driver’s license, if you can believe that, because it’s running at a staggering 20hp. The version for which you require no license to drive operates at a neck breaking 5hp. As far as the ride goes the 2013 Renault Twizy has an extremely low centre of gravity providing a surprisingly stable ride. And its all around disc brakes provide adequate stopping power.
2013 Renault Twizy Engine :
Renault’s eye catching Twizy is powered by a 13kW (17hp) motor with a limited top speed of around 50 mph. The bodywork is extremely visible in traffic to other road users and both occupants are protected by a deformable structure, while the outboard position of the four wheels and the lateral beams located either side of the chassis provide protection on either side.
The lower powered version, Twizy 45 (5hp), 45 kph/28 mph), was not originally planned for the UK market, however, recent confirmation that a new category of European licence AM for 16 year olds and over, comes into effect in the UK from 19th January 2013, means that Renault UK are now studying its sales potential.
With such unique looks, unsurprisingly, there are several more uncommon options and accessories than on your average four wheeled mode of transport. Among them are scissor doors (£545), driver and passenger blanket £110 and a 50-litre leisure bag £95 which sits on the rear seat and clips into the chassis so that objects stay firmly in place. Rounding off the more traditional enhancements are metallic paint for £195, a child booster seat at £55, and alloy wheels for £340. All prices include VAT.
The Renault Twizy weighs in at 450kg and that’s including 100kg batteries. And you have to include the batteries or else we’re simply talking about an over sized stroller. Unless you cut holes in the floor and do it Flintstone style. On the plus side the Twizy has a fairly impressive range of 100km. Its battery is very simple and convenient to charge. It has an extendable spiral cable stored in a small compartment at the front of the vehicle. The Twizy is equipped with an integrated charger making the cable compatible with roadside battery charging facilities. An additional adapter permits this cable to be plugged into any 220V 10A household electrical supply. The battery fully charges in three and a half hours. Remember, this little gem is only available in Europe right now so don’t hold your breath. Source: autocar.co.uk, autocarrelease.com.
