Cargo version of Renault Twizy was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 as its manufacturer plans to launch a stripped-down version of the car for various delivery services
Renault showcased quite a few cars at the Auto Expo 2020. The super-compact, cute, and funky Renault Twizy was also present on the show floor. What's heartening is that the car was not present at the motor show just to attract crows to Renault’s pavilion but it was showcased in the Cargo version to seek feedback from various delivery service agents that operate in India. It is, however, important to note that inspite of being the Cargo version, Twizy did not miss out on any of its fancy design elements. It had its scissor doors intact with other safety features like the airbags, ABS, and a Euro-spec seatbelt.
Renault plans to launch a stripped-down version of the quadricycle for delivery services like Amazon and Ekart.
Renault plans to launch this Cargo version of the car in the Indian market for delivery services of e-commerce giants like Amazon, Flipkart, Zomato, etc. The Cargo version of the Twizy qualifies under the latest Quadricycle norms, thus the manufacturer can miss out on certain features to reduce the overall cost and weight of the car. The Cargo version of the car will also get a storage compartment at the rear to store the stuff. The manufacturer might also provide some additional storage space inside the cabin to further increase the cargo volume.
The Cargo version of the Twizy will have a trunk at the rear to store stuff.
Renault Twizy is powered by an electric motor coupled to a battery pack that can be charged from 0 to 100% in just 3 hours 30 minutes from a 15A wall charger. The electric motor produces a peak power of 13kW and a peak torque of 57Nm, thereby giving it a top speed of 80 kmph. It offers a range of more than 100 kilometres, but we expect the manufacturer to increase the range by placing an additional battery pack in place of the rear seat. The Cargo version that manufacturer is planning to launch in India will be a stripped-down version of the Cargo version sold internationally. This would also help the manufacturer to aggressively price the Twizy in India.
