Update of this morning's article with the official video reveal
We already knew that an electric Twingo would be launched by 2014, here is a first glimpse of its looks!
Teased just a week ago Renault chose a design event (Milan Furniture Fair) and not an automotive show to present the concept car that heralds the new Twingo.
The Twin'Z is a small modern city-car with 3.62m long and opposing doors, its design is "magnified" by Ross Lovegrove. To sum-up : Fiat 500 proportions, R5 inspired front-end and C30 hatchback that features LED lights directly in the glass, only iconic cars/shapes!
Developed in partnership with Daimler for a chassis that will also be used in the ForTwo and probably ForFour, the concept goes back-wheel drive.
Indeed, its electric motor develops 50kw (68hp) for a torque of 226nm on the rear wheels, the maximum speed is listed at 130kph.
4 battery packs are placed in the floor and allow a range of 160 km with a total weight of 980kg only.
