• Renault’s latest video has the green Twizy plugging into the Eiffel Tower for juice!

  • Car manufacturer Renault recently went all out to portray its French roots with its latest video that has seemed to grab a load of attention lately. Featuring the Renault Twizy, a pod car that’s green as a leaf, the video has a bunch of youngsters hooking up their compact electric vehicles to the Eiffel Tower for a quick charge. Termed as an electric covered scooter by a few, this little vehicle is available with a nine-horsepower engine with a top speed of 28mph and a 20bhp version that has its speedometer swing all the way up to 47mph. Also, a three-and-a-half-hour plug-in has the scooter/car going to a good 60 miles! Available at a starting price of $9,923 for the most basic version, the Renault Twizy is indeed a practical way to get around your pollution-choked overcrowded suburban town.
