has given the Twizy electric car a mad by bolting on an F1-style KERS for Megane Renaultsport 265-worrying available for the very brave. The Renault Sport F1 Concept on single seater racing has an F1-apeing front splitter, rear wing and even a diffuser to make the link to the side of Renault’s activities.

F1-style KERS in a Twizy? How that work then?

(Kinetic Energy Recovery uses regenerative energy under braking and is then up in batteries rather than as heat. This energy is recovered and stored. The KERS comprises of three parts; an motor-generator unit (MGU) linked to the driveshaft; separate batteries and a KERS control (KCU).

The MGU works, as the name implies, as both generator and motor. In mode it works to convert energy into electrical which is then stored in a When the energy is needed it is reversed and switches to ‘motor’ to deliver the stored energy.

not really that fast is it?

the Twizy F1 is being pitched as a fun on the electric city car it is packing pretty serious performance. claims the KERS boosta the six-fold to deploy 100bhp and as quickly as a Renault Sport 265. That means a sprint in the region of 6.5sec.

The Twizy F1 has two electric motors; the Twizy 17bhp motor the KERS system bolted it which when activated power to 97bhp.

Tell me the Twizy F1’s two KERS

The biggest problem with the and KERS is that the basic car really fast enough to enough energy to power up the To get around this the battery can be by siphoning off energy from the motor.

The are two KERS modes; the ‘Recovery’ mode where the motor functions like a generator to convert the mechanical into electrical. Up to 4kW can be siphoned off in way to charge the battery while on the The second mode is ‘Boost’ which uses the energy in ‘Recovery’ mode can be re-employed the driver wishes by tapping the on the steering wheel.

This means the KERS as a motor to bring a power to the principal motor which is linked to the driveshaft.

When is it on sale?

Don’t hold breath. This has been purely to show off Renault’s vehicle engineering nowse. The has pinned big hopes on the yet-to-start car revolution.
