Electrifying experience for Formula One stars who zipped through Dubai

DUBAI // Two Formula One stars drove through the streets of Dubai last week in an unlikely vehicle.

Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber and Caterham’s Charles Pic cruised through the city in a battery-powered electric vehicle – the Renault Twizy.

A far cry from their high-powered F1 cars, it has a top speed of 80kph, thanks to a 17 horse power electric engine.

The Twizy has a range of 100km and can be fully recharged in three and half hours from a domestic socket.

The pair toured the roads of Jumeirah, Downtown Dubai, and Safa Park in the tiny Twizys, which are only 2.34 metres long and 1.24 metres wide.

“Driving down Dubai’s iconic roads and alleys was an amazing experience,” said Webber.

“What made it even more special was the fact that the Twizy is a green car. The silence inside the vehicle was pretty impressive.”
