Design
There’s nothing else like the Twizy on the road. It was designed from the wheels
up as a new concept in urban transport – a compact all-electric vehicle that’s
ideal for the cut and thrust of city and suburban driving. Emissions-free in
use, safe, comfortable and easy to drive, it once again shows Renault setting
the agenda in forward-thinking design and engineering.
In little more than two years the Twizy (a name that captures the idea of ‘two’
and ‘easy’) was brought from concept to reality, with key input from Renault
Sport Technologies into chassis, driving dynamics and clever regenerative
braking technology.
3
Arguably the world’s coolest commercial vehicle was unveiled in 2013 with
the appearance of the single-seat Twizy Cargo. Swapping the rear seat for a
lockable 180-litre, 75kg boot, creates a vehicle perfect for business use. The
Cargo is classed as a car-derived van by HM Revenue and Customs, so the
VAT is recoverable, and it is exempt from the Central London Congestion
Charge. When wearing a business livery, its distinctive looks make it an
effective mobile advertising unit.
Exterior – fun and functional
Its curvy structure and wheel-at-each-corner design may look avant-garde,
but the Twizy is highly practical. Its overall length is just 2.34m, the width
1.24m, allowing the Twizy to slot neatly into parking spaces too tight for
other four-wheeled vehicles.
The unbroken curve of the panoramic windscreen into the roof and side
wind deflectors create good protection from the elements, as well as
excellent visibility, but owners can specify a ‘clear sky roof’ for an even
better all-round view.
Expression versions of the Twizy are fitted with grey Snowflake wheel trims;
13-inch Diamond gloss alloys feature on the Dynamique model.
Renault’s ‘Design Your Own Twizy’ wraps allow customers to choose from a
selection of existing designs (including animal prints or weather patterns),
or to create a bespoke design for all or part of the vehicle.
Doors and windows are both available as options to give further protection
from the British climate. The doors open with a scissor action – ideal in
narrow parking spots. The windows can be fitted in minutes. The ingenious
system comes in two parts – a rigid metal frame which attaches to the
door and a flexible, transparent ‘window’, which fastens to the frame by
means of a zip.
An opening within the window provides access to the door handle and
enables the transparent panel to be opened or closed. Two slits in the
panel – one at the front and the other at the rear – ensure a sufficient flow
of air to prevent the interior from misting up.
The windows require just one tool to fit, require no bodywork modification
and can easily be removed by the owner if they fancy some fresh air.
As part of Renault’s ongoing attention to quality, the system has been
extensively tested to ensure its resistance to UV light, corrosion and cold
temperatures.

This is the ultimate in personalisation; as well as a huge range of colours,
owners can also choose from patterns and designs to make their Twizy
truly their own. With the new website configurator (www.renault.co.uk/
dyot), owners will be able to see exactly what their Twizy will look like
before ordering.
It doesn’t end there. Lots of businesses are making the most of
Twizy’s ability to stand out and be noticed. The ‘Do Your Own Thing’
option within Design Your Own Twizy allows them to make sure their
vehicle reflects their business as fully as possible; wraps can include
business names and images so the possiblities are limited only
by imagination.
Body wrap options
Option 1 Door only
Option 2 Door and frame
Option 3 Door, frame rear and front
Option 4 Full wrap with owner’s design
6
Interior – no space wasted
The Twizy’s driver and passenger in the Expression and Dynamique models sit
in tandem rather than side-by-side. The driver’s seat can also be adjusted to
achieve the best driving position. Both seats are comfortable, with integrated
headrests, and they are covered in waterproof upholstery.
The instrumentation is clear and simple, with displays for drive, speed, driving
range and battery charge. There’s also a display giving an ‘eco-score’ for each
journey, further signalling the Twizy’s environmental efficiency.
7
Although the cabin is compact, no space is wasted. Two gloveboxes are
provided – one can be locked – and a handy 31-litre storage point behind the
rear seat in the two-seater versions. With just the driver on board, this space
can be increased to 50 litres with the optional leisure bag, designed to clip on
to the chassis so items can be stored safely. Storage nets hold smaller items.
Twizy owners can also order an optional motorcycle-style blanket for the
driver and passenger for extra warmth and comfort.
8
Twizy Cargo
In the Cargo, the rear seat has been removed to leave a 180-litre boot capable
of carrying a 75kg payload ideal for ‘final mile’ deliveries from depots or
railway stations, and equally suitable for local food delivery companies or
9
urban trades people who need to carry tools. The Twizy Cargo’s equipment
is based on the Expression trim.
Technologies
The Twizy comes complete with a three-metre extending spiral cable with
an integrated charger, stored beneath a handy flap at the front of the vehicle.
Recharging is simple, using a standard three-pin plug to connect the vehicle to
any 220V 10A domestic or workplace electricity supply. A full recharge takes
3.5 hours, and could cost as little as £1-£1.50, depending on the energy tariff.
The Twizy can also be charged at roadside charging points.
Thanks to the regenerative braking system, energy is recovered by the EV
system every time the vehicle slows.
A Garmin sat-nav and a Parrot MK9100 Bluetooth® kit are both optional.
This unique Bluetooth® hands-free kit includes wireless remote control and
colour display, voice synthesiser and voice recognition requiring no preprogramming, plus MP3 iPod connectivity.
10
Safety
Being a four-wheeled vehicle – classed as a heavy quadricycle – Twizy is
inherently more stable and offers greater protection than a scooter or
motorcycle. Its height and curvy shape make it much more visible to other
road users.
Disc brakes all round and a low centre of gravity give good stopping power
and fundamental stability.
11
At the front, a deformable structure provides protection in the event of a
collision, while the outboard wheels and lateral beams either side of the
chassis give side protection.
The driver is held securely in a four-point seatbelt, with a three-point belt
for the passenger, and in the event of a front-end collision a driver’s airbag
deploys. The front seat also has an anti-submarining design.
Powertrains, Chassis and Driving Dynamics
Motor and battery
The Twizy is powered by a rear-mounted 17hp (13kW) motor and a compact
and lightweight 6.1kWh lithium-ion battery, located underneath the front seat.
Keeping the kerb weight down to a trim 474kg, including the 100kg battery
pack, has helped deliver an official NEDC combined cycle driving range of
56 miles. This translates to around 43 miles in temperate conditions and 31
in the extreme cold, which is ample for the majority of everyday commuting
journeys or local deliveries. Because it is powered purely by electricity, Twizy
produces no tailpipe emissions and runs almost silently.
Driving through a one-speed reduction gear automatic transmission, the
Twizy can reach a (limited) top speed of 50mph. This might sound modest,
but the Twizy is no slouch. Because its maximum 57Nm (42lb ft) of torque is
delivered straight from start-up, it has a quick-off-the-mark driving character,
made even more fun by its responsive steering. The direct-rack system
requires just 2.8 turns lock to lock, and the turning circle between kerbs is a
city-friendly 6.8m.
A bespoke suspension set-up features MacPherson-type struts and anti-roll
bars front and rear, with coil springs, for enjoyable handling with a comfortable
ride.
Twizy’s 13-inch wheels contribute to the vehicle’s reassuring stability and
grip, and they are fitted with Continental eContact tyres.125/80R13 at the
front and wider 145/80R13 at the rear.
12
Technology from Renault Sport Racing
Renault made good use of the technology skills of the Renault Sport Racing
Formula One Team in developing its new electric powertrain for the Twizy.
Their experience, in particular with the KERS regenerative braking system
used in Grand Prix racing, and their testing facilities were invaluable, given
the short development time for the vehicle and the lack of previous in-house
experience with the motor specified for Twizy.
The system was tested at the Renault Sport Technologies facility at VitryChâtillon, applying motorsport processes. The test programme benefitted
from the expertise and knowledge sharing between the engineering teams,
and was completed ahead of schedule, with excellent results.
13
UK Specifications
The Twizy is available in three trim levels in the UK – Expression, Dynamique
and Cargo. Expression has all the essentials for safe and easy driving around
town, while Dynamique adds features for extra style and street presence.
Cargo is a pint-sized commercial vehicle.
Customers can buy their battery outright, or opt for Renault’s cost-effective
battery hire programme, which tailors charges to annual mileages across a
range of contract periods. This programme gives customers the reassurance
that that they will not face big bills should their battery fail to perform within
its specified operating parameters.
The hire contract price covers:
In the lead-up to the launch of its Z.E. range, Renault UK appointed a network
of 22 Z.E. Expert Dealerships, which have invested in specialist tooling and
training for workshop staff as well as those in sales. This includes obtaining
accreditation to a European standard for electrical safety from the IMI and
Lloyds Register. A minimum of two technicians and the service manager
have taken specialist training. In addition, there is a charging point in the
workshop and in the customer car park. The network of Expert Dealerships
has since grown to 87, and all Renault dealerships are now able to sell and
service the Z.E. models.
The recommended service interval is at every 18,000 miles, or annually.
• The supply of a battery that is always in good operating condition
• The guarantee that charging capacity will always be more than 75% of
what it was when the battery was new
• Comprehensive breakdown cover, including roadside rescue for cases of
a battery running flat
Notably, there is no involvement of any third party in the battery hire; the
contract is with Renault through its subsidiary, RCI Financial Services. The
contract guarantees the battery will work well and carry a good level of charge.
By hiring the battery, the customer also faces no financial risk should the unit
malfunction. And when it comes to resale of the vehicle, there is no impact
on the residual value.
The Twizy is covered by the Renault 4+ package of a manufacturer’s warranty
for four years/100,000 miles (unlimited mileage in the first two years). Within
the battery contract there is a lifetime performance guarantee, plus home
and roadside assistance, including help if the user runs out of charge.
In addition to the standard manufacturer’s warranty, Renault offers a
‘programmed maintenance’ service, which lets customers choose the best
formula of years/mileage to suit their vehicle use, in line with the duration
of their battery-hire contract.

Manufacturing
The Twizy has been manufactured at the Renault factory in Valladolid,
Spain, since 2012. The plant was chosen for its experience in compact car
production and well-deserved reputation for high manufacturing quality
as well as its easy access to important Western European markets. The
Valladolid bodywork-assembly site has been ISO 14001 certified since 1999.
23
Since its founding in 1953, the site has built 17 models including the
Renault 5, Renault 12, Super 5, Clio and Modus. It also produces parts for
other Renault group plants. Today, the plant is the production centre for
the Captur, and its 2,693 employees assemble around 1,350 vehicles daily.
A special building is dedicated to production of the Twizy.
History
At the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009 Renault announced a
radical programme for delivering a new range of zero-emissions (in use)
electric vehicles, working with its Alliance partner Nissan.
Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Renault, said:
“The automobile industry contributes to the problem of climate change. It
generates 12 per cent of the CO2 emissions that result from human activity
and accounts for 25 per cent of the world’s oil consumption. At Renault,
therefore, we have decided to be part of the solution.”
July 2015 Putting Twizy in line with the rest of the Renault range, Expression+
replaces Urban trim and Dynamique takes the place of Technic.
September 2016 The success of the Z.E. project is demonstrated as Renault
hands over the keys to its 100,000th electric car (a ZOE).
March 2017 Renault signs its 100,000th electric vehicle battery leasing
contract.
April 2017 Renault delivers 10 Twizys to America’s Cup challenger Groupama
Team France.
Renault’s intentions were made clear at Frankfurt, where it showed four Z.E.
concepts: Twizy, ZOE, Fluence and Kangoo. All of these models have since
been brought to market. Kangoo Van Z.E. led the way in November 2011,
followed by the Fluence Z.E. saloon and Twizy in 2012. The flagship, ZOE,
was shown in production form in 2012 before going on sale in the UK the
following summer. The versatility of the Twizy concept was demonstrated
with the launch of the Twizy Cargo in summer 2014.
