One must confirm it to Renault company, it tackles the problem of electric vehicles and at least delivers buyable products, in addition to the Fluence with replaceable set of batteries,the city car Twizy. And if the infrastructure would match, both concepts are certainly worth thinking.

Coming back to the Twizy. It solves a problem in a rather unconventional way that a car with an internal combustion engine has not even, namely the heating of the interior in winter. The solution: it will be delivered without heating. Even if one orders doors with surcharge, open there is always something.

There's already advisable real warm clothing, but then you will also be rewarded with an acceptable range, while in other electric vehicles, while others electric vehicles allow the consumption practically unrestrained. To cap it all, these even offer (although weak dimensioned) air conditioners.

Thus we may trust the indications of the range the Twizy something more. Perhaps you know that the heater in the car is a part of road safety, which could lead to a 'not passed' earlier time at the two-year review by Technical Control Board of an air cooled vehicle.

The idea is to prevent fogging of the windshield. Renault takes no risks here and electrically heated this. Of course, one also has a wipe-washing system on board. The equipment of the Twizy is otherwise kept frugally. You sit one behind the other in seats to reach partly difficult.

This reduces somewhat the second problem of electric vehicles, namely the low range due to high air resistance. This is dissolved in the Twizy at least by a small cross-sectional area. Additionally acts braking here, the low speed of 80 km/h.

This, however, makes the car less well suited for highway operation. Because with this somewhat frail appearance to be permanently overtaken by trucks and from their air movements to be rocked back and forth, really does not enjoy. Thus remain the country roads and city traffic which also benefits the range.

The lockable facilities are not really to see as positive. There really is only to leave home the passenger for a larger shopping. Ride comfort also is rather sporty hard. This is due probably to lack of ABS and ESP, which would make the car with its small track prone in the elk test. 08/12               Top of page               Index
