Renault Twingo e-tech Electric

Invitation to an urban waltz

The Renault Twingo is a small, all-purpose city car that is finally available with an electric engine—undoubtedly the best suited to the purposes it serves.
Since it first went into production in 1992, the Twingo has grown in size whilst at the same time retaining its unusual features. Reflecting its small, agile nature, its name is a contraction of the names of three dances—twist, swing and tango— and the Twingo moves through the city streets like a prima ballerina, with elegance, grace and ease.
Its strong point is, unsurprisingly, its steering angle, but we also found its ‘B’ driving mode particularly appealing. Offering 3 levels of regenerative braking, this mode allows you to optimise and manage your energy consumption as you see fit to suit your purposes.
In practical terms, the car will coast along in ‘B1’ mode but decelerate sharply in ‘B3’, which can therefore be used as a brake instead of using the pedal provided for this purpose.
One of the problems with electric vehicles is that they are silent, which, of course, increases the risk of accidents involving pedestrians. Renault’s engineers have sought to rectify this by ensuring that the Twingo makes a slight sound that can be heard both inside and outside the car when it is moving at low speeds.
As far as the interior is concerned, there was a certain lack of fluidity when using the central screen to switch from one menu to another, but the Vibes trim level on the vehicle we test-drove stood out for its special upholstery accented with bright orange highlights, making for a warm and vibrant driver’s seat.
