Renault Twin’Z Offers Up Striking Electric Car Design Study

Renault, in planning what kind of future urban cars it might unveil in key markets, recently showcased the Twin’Z as its fifth iteration of its new design strategy. Described as a “fun, modern, artistic take” on the citycar, this electric four-seater draws its inspiration from the automaker’s Renault 5 and Twingo models.

The Twin’Z is described as being the “play” petal of Renault Design’s “life cycle flower.” This flower focused on the notion of the human life cycle, according to Renault, which has already examined the ideas of love, exploration, family and work as expressed through automotive design. Uh-huh.

So, in more practical terms, what does this electric vehicle offer to would-be drivers? For starters, it sports rear wheel drive and a rear-mounted electric motor rated at 50 kW. This motor is powered by four lithium-ion battery packs spaced evenly beneath the car’s floor. All total, operating specifications of the Twin’Z play out to a top speed of 80 MPH and a range of around 100 miles. This should be more than enough for the daily urban driver’s needs.
