Paris, France, December 29, 2020 — The Renault Twingo Electric got tested. Thanks to its clean and silent 100% electric propulsion, 82hp engine, reduced size, and its excellent turning radius, Renault’s iconic small city car provides even greater driving pleasure and comfort daily. Professional driver Charlotte Berton, who was behind the wheel for this test, endorses that Twingo Electric more than ever deserves its nickname as the queen of the city!



DISCOVER THE TWINGO ELECTRIC

Twingo Electric takes up the playful design that has made its Twingo twin such a success. It has “endearing impish looks,” as Charlotte Berton likes to remind one during her test drive.

A few small, signature details echo this electric version. There is a recharging socket, blue piping on the front grille., and a strapping in the wheels’ center. A pinstripe also runs along the body to highlight the car’s dynamic lines.

The Twingo Electric Vibes limited edition car stands out for its vibrant exterior style with its exclusive “Valencia Orange” color. Orange or white strippings, white inserts on the front grille, and 16” Monega diamond alloy wheels with orange wheel caps round off its sparkling summery style.

THE QUEEN OF THE ELECTRIC CITY CARS!

As Charlotte Berton explains, “Drivers today are looking for vehicles that are practical, economical, and environmentally friendly. And Twingo Electric is Renault’s answer to this changing demand.”

This model has a range of 270 km in town. Compared with the average daily mileage of around 30 kilometers traveled by owners of mini-city cars in Europe. It means one can make a week’s worth of daily journeys without charging anytime. What’s more, it is easy to recharge it at any charging station, thanks to its Cameleon® Renault-patented intelligent charger. A simple half-hour break connected to a 22-kW terminal is enough to recover enough power to drive 80 kilometers on mixed routes.

Behind the wheel, you start quietly. The electric engine is refreshing, with a power output of 60 kW (82 hp) for a maximum torque of 160 Nm immediately available. Acceleration and throttle response are at the same time frank, silent and accessible from low revs. In addition to its liveliness, Twingo Electric still offers the best turning radius on the market and excellent agility thanks to its four-cornered wheels.

Twingo Electric has a specific mode in addition to the traditional functions, known as “B mode.” It is a smart system that adapts driving to the traffic conditions and lanes used. There are three modes to choose from, and the one selected acts directly on energy recovery linked to the car’s deceleration.

A VERY FUNCTIONAL ONBOARD SPACE

Twingo Electric has a spacious and practical interior. The center console with its storage compartments, the closed glove compartment, the sockets designed for smartphones, and the 7-inch touch screen are all details that enhance onboard comfort. Noteworthies are the Renault EASY LINK multimedia system and the MY Renault application, which provide access to numerous connected services such as real-time tracking of the car’s charge or planning a trip according to the charging points available on the way.

The interior decorations are reminiscent of the new “Valencia Orange” color on the Vibes limited series. From the new specific upholstery to the inserts on the dashboard, the Vibes Limited Series has sparkling touches of orange. The complete details, emblazoned with “Vibes,” animate the center console and door sills.

CHARLOTTE BERTON’S VIEW

For Charlotte Berton, this test-drive was successful. Twingo Electric was a pleasant surprise.

“Autonomy, versatile recharging, agility, connected services: New Renault Twingo Electric is the ideal city car for everyday use,” concludes the driver in her video.
