Althought we won’t be seeing the cool Renault Twizy soon, it will go on sale in Europe at the end of ’11. Unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show, the Twizy was showcased again at Geneva this week. The Twizy range will begin at €6900 ($9623 USD).

Tests conducted in Paris reveal that the driver of a Twizy will save an average of 25% on journey times in town. This translates into a saving of more than seven minutes on a journey that would normally take 30 minutes in a Smart-sized micro city car. This may be the new ultimate city commuter…

With an overall length similar to that of a motorcycle, Twizy is easier to park than a car. In some countries, Twizy can be parked at right angles to the curb. A turning circle of 3.4m (11.15ft) guarantees great agility and easy parking.

Safety is also taken into account. The Twizy’s bodywork is a cell which encloses both the driver and the passenger. In the event of a frontal impact, the deformable structure absorbs the energy of the crash to protect the occupants. The Twizy is also fitted with an airbag for the driver, four-point seatbelt for the front seat and a three-point seatbelt at the rear.

A full charge of Twizy’s batteries takes 3½ hours using a domestic supply via the cable stowed behind a flap at the front of the vehicle. Different adaptors will be made available to connect Twizy to all types of public and private charging points.

In everyday use, this range can vary from 34 to 72 miles, depending on the driving conditions.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang.
