§ Renault, the most advanced company in the world — in the electric vehicle field, is the first car-maker to market an electric car in the Middle East Region.

Peyman Kargar, Renault Middle East Managing Director declared :Renault has always been a leading company in terms of innovation. With Renault Twizy, officially launched in the Middle East at the Qatar Motor Show, Renault brings real innovation to the Middle East’s customers. With the Renault Twizy, Renault plays the difference by being the only car manufacturer in the Middle East to market a 100% electric vehicle.

The Renault Twizy is a car of character with an amazingly modern design, fun to drive, safe and silent.

Renault Twizy; fun, easy-to-use and easy-to-drive!

Designed as an ultramobile, this impertinent newcomer is about to set the trend in the Middle East! With its ultra-compact dimensions -2.34m long, 1.24m wide and 1.45m tall- nothing like the Renault Twizy currently exists on the Middle East market.

Renault Twizy has all the essentials: flexibility, dynamism, and safety. But most of all, a design that speaks for itself, the Twizy can be customised to suit any taste. From serious to fun, it comes in 4 main colours — blue, white, red, black — from which many styling combinations will be available.

For the bold and thrill-seekers, Twizy also offers a line of stickers to liven up the doors and rims. From a nightclub light show (black or white version) to refined black-and-white styles, it would take hundreds of pages to show you every customised Twizy available.

Powered entirely by electricity, the Renault Twizy has an urban-cycle range of approximately 85km. The batteries are charged via an extendible cable located behind the Renault diamond at the front of the car. A full charge takes around 3½ hours using, the normal household 220-240v domestic supply (3pin Plug).

The lithium-ion batteries which power the electric motor are mounted beneath the seats to lower the centre of gravity.

A safe car

The Renault Twizy features comprehensive personal protection. Its tubular chassis keeps occupants safe from impacts, and its 4 disc brakes offer real active safety. Combined with an outsized turning radius, the Twizy is not just a fun car, but also a very responsive one.

For passive safety, never before seen on a vehicle that handles this well, the Renault Twizy is equipped with a 4-point seatbelt and a driver’s airbag. The technology-filled Twizy also offers a rear parking aid — the safest way to park in a tight space without scratching the car.

Renault Twizy available for pre-booking

Pre-booking for the Renault Twizy will be open in GCC countries starting with United Arab Emirates and Qatar.

As a reference in the UAE, the Renault Twizy’s price will start from 77,900 UAE Dirhams. The Renault Twizy is covered by a 2-year warranty** package up to 50,000 km. This requires a full servicing history according to current Renault approved standards.

The Renault Twizy uses technology from the world of Formula One

Renault Sport F1 and Technologies has contributed extensively to the birth of the Renault Twizy. From the very beginning of the concept, its mission was to imagine an ultramobile for two (TWIN) which was both intuitive and simple to use (EASY). Twizy took form at the heart of Renault’s motorsport division. From the initial briefs for the chassis and performance characteristics which were drawn up by Renault Sport Technologies, to the tuning of its motor and reliability running on the same dynos as the F1 team’s engines, the Twizy’s development was in expert hands.

RENAULT Twizy Electric Cars

In addition to the strengths concealed by the model’s unusual forms, this distillation of technology features active and passive safety systems worthy of the newcomer’s Renault heritage. Thanks to its light weight (450kg, including batteries), the surprising acceleration of its electric motor (13kW, 57Nm) and the opportunity it offers for driving in the open air without a helmet, the Twizy is a unique concept — which is poised to make its natural environment — built-up areas — even cleaner and safer places.

The car was already adopted by Formula 1 drivers Marc Webber and Charles Pic prior to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Watch the video:

Renault, a pioneer brand in electric vehicles

Electric vehicles do not emit any CO2, NOx, fine particles, odours or engine noise when on the move (apart from wear parts). Towns and cities will benefit from electric vehicles because they improve air quality and reduce urban noise levels. As a pioneer in the electric vehicle field, Renault is the only car manufacturer to market a complete range of four electric vehicles: Kangoo Z.E.

Fluence Z.E. Twizy and ZOE. Renault is the European leader with a 37% market share and 37,536 units sold in 2013.
