Renault Twizy Z.E. Concept

The Renault Twizy Z.E. Concept features a four wheel chassis and seating for two passengers. The Renault Twizy ZE Concept is powered by a 15kW (20hp) electric motor. This develops 70Nm of torque, and combines comfort with responsive performance at all engine speeds. Twizy ZE Concept can accelerate at a similar rate to a 125cc bike, and pulls away briskly from standstill. With a top speed of 75kph, Renault Twizy ZE Concept will also be in its element in suburban traffic.

The lithium-ion batteries for Renault Twizy Z.E. Concept are located beneath the two seats. They are charged by means of an extendible cable located behind the Renault logo at the front. This cable can be plugged into a 220V 10A or 16A domestic socket, and will fully charge the batteries in just three and a half hours.
Renault Twizy ZE Concept is the forerunner of one of the all-electric mobility solutions that Renault will introduce from 2011.
