2013 Renault Twin-Z Concept

Category: Renault | Author: | Date: April 8th, 2013

Renault has presented a new Concept: Renault Twin-Z. It looks like it is the next car after Renault TwinFun Concept. How do you think it is like? In my opinion this new Concept has something that make you think to aliens. It is strange, right?

The resemblance to the Renault TwinFun Concept is that it has an electric engine. It is powered by 67bhp and four battery packs. Ross Lovegrove was the one who helped with the design of the car. This new 2013 Renault Twin-Z Concept was presented in Milan (Italy) at a furniture show. Let’s see the first picture with this Renault Twin-Z Concept.

What is your first impression about the new 2013 Renault Twin-Z Concept? I think it is weird. The combination of colors doesn’t look so good.

I don’t see a match between blue and green. Those green rims are supposed to be a splash of color?

Renault Twizy. Review

Category: Renault | Author: | Date: April 5th, 2013

Renault Twizy, the perfect car for urban transport. Why? Because it is smaller than Smart and is an electric car. It has only 2.32-metres long. If we were to compare this car with the Smart ForTwo we could say that they look almost the same, but I think that the Renault Twizy is smaller.

It was produced to be half a car and half a motorcycle. Does it sound good to you? The safety of this car is properly, with an optional scissor doors and zip-on windows provide some protection.

The producers have created two models. One has a motor power of 4 kW (5 hp), a maximum speed of 45 km/h. It can be driven in most European countries by drivers from 16 years old without driving license (France, Italy, Spain) or with a moped license (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Austria). I am sure that this is an advantage for you and are already thinking to buy it.

Is it the Concept of Renault TwinFun or TwinRun?

Category: Renault | Author: | Date: April 3rd, 2013

The Renault TwinFun or TwinRun Concept was spotted! The spies caught it on the street, probably when they were shooting for a commercial or something else. They don’t know if the car that they saw is Renault TwinFun or Renault TwinRun because they didn’t see the name on the tailgate.

It was filmed on the streets of Madrid (Spain). When you first see it, you can say it is a Fiat 500 or even the Smart ForTwo. The vents in front of the rear wheels and on the rear bumper make us to believe this is a mid-engined car.

They also noticed that it has a roll cage, center dual xhaust setup, a roof-mounted spoiler and the rear side windows which are thickened and opaque.

Have you heard about the new Renault Zoe? It is an electric car!

I am sure that all the cars that are electric are new for everyone. It is known that they are a new generation of cars, and it is for sure that people will buy it. A car like Renault Zoe, is powered by 60 kW.

It is a pretty little car, in my opinion, perfect for the ladies. The advantage of having a Renault Zoe is the fact that it has “zero-emission” so you can drive and also protect the environment. The size allows you to park it in small places. Its battery can stay charged from six to eight hours.
