New Renault electric car: compact format and fast charging


Renault is preparing an electric version of the Twingo model. According to Auto Express, the premiere of a compact 3.6-meter electric car is scheduled for the March Geneva motor show, and soon after it will start selling in Europe.

New Renault Twingo Z.E. will receive a power plant from Smart EQ. This is not surprising, because cars are built on the same platform. Electric car Renault will be equipped with 82-horsepower engine and battery capacity of 17.6 kW ∙ h.

Characteristics of Renault Twingo Z.E. not yet announced, but they are likely to be at the Smart level. That is, acceleration to 100 km / h will take about 12 s, and the maximum speed will be about 130 km / h.

Cruising range will be small – approximately 145 km. However, this is compensated by the ability to quickly charge 80% in 40 minutes.
