Renault announces an all-electric version of the Twingo city car, which will be released in Europe later this year.

Renault has confirmed that it will launch a new all-electric version of the Twingo city car later this year, along with its new line of E-Tech hybrid cars and interchangeable vehicles. This announcement follows Renault’s decision to withdraw Twingo from the UK market last year after unsuccessful sales.

Renault has not yet officially announced the details of the Twingo Z.E. transmission. However, given that Twingo uses the same platform as ForFour Smart EQ, we expect it to get the same 17.6 kW / h battery and 80 hp rear electric motor.

This engine should enable Twingo Z.E. accelerate from 0 – 100 km per hour in about 12 seconds, the maximum speed of 130 km per hour and the range on the battery is 145 km at full charge.

Twingo Z.E. is expected. will also share the 22 kW Smart charging architecture, allowing you to charge 10 to 80 percent capacity in less than 40 minutes. It is also likely that buyers will be offered a smartphone application similar to the Smart application, which will allow them to remotely check the status of their car, providing information about the car’s charge level, its location and range.

It is assumed that he will officially debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2020, and then go on sale in Europe at the end of this year. Renault currently has no plans to sell the electric Twingo in the UK.
