What do you need to know about the Twizy? Well, your parking stresses are over. It is neat and compact and easy to park.
Let’s us explain to you why we love it so much: to start we know Renault Twizy safety is paramount.
You have control, due to it’s moderate speed you will see any potential obstacles ahead of time
Lower congestion on the roads
Renault wants the Twizy to take over urban centres, this makes sense as it is an easy alternative to a ‘traditional‘ car.
It's narrow, so you can fit two side by side on busy city roads and travel with ease in narrow streets and laneways, and effectively double the number of people using the roads.
It has been crash tested by Euro NCAP, and performed best out of the four quadricyles tested.
There’s an airbag and two seat belts – which is more than you get on a motorbike. Safer and a natural progression for those who usually select a motorcycle or scooter while on holidays.
With a 50mph maximum speed, the Twizy should give its driver plenty of time to recognise potential hazards, too
Car like features such as the high rear brake light, proper wing mirrors and even a hands-free Bluetooth phone kit all help on safety front,
an airbag as standard – the only quadricycle to feature one
According to Renault the Twizy receives four times more interest than it’s other conventional EV’s.
In a nutshell the Twizy is part-car, part-scooter, and entirely zero emissions (at the tailpipe), it’s exactly the kind of car that, future gazers claim, will populate our cities big and small in years to come.
This corresponds with our mission and promise to you at Current Vehicles, Our mission is to provide you with the safest, greenest and most unique way to explore Bermuda, all at a great price!
