Renault Twizy priced at $9,923* in UK, reservations begin
Posted May 13th 2011 5:32PM
Renault announced at the Barcelona Motor Show that it's now accepting online reservations for its pair of electric Twizy models. The Twizy 45 starts at the bargain-basement price of just €6,990 (that's only $9,549 Cdn at today's exchange rate). Of course, at that price, you still need to lease the battery, and Renault says that adds €45 ($61 Cdn) per month. The €6,990 price is only for the Twizy 45, which is powered by a five-horsepower electric motor and can be driven without a license in some countries.
The Renault Twizy (not to be confused with the Twizy 45) is equipped with a 17-hp motor and is available in two trims: Urban and Technic, which start at €7,690 ($10,506 Cdn) and €8,490 ($11,598 Cdn), respectively. Leasing the battery pack for these Twizy models will cost you €49 ($67 Cdn) a month.
The Renault Twizy models are due to go on sale at the end of 2011 in Europe. Reservations can be made by clicking here. Hat tip to Guillaume!
