Renault Twingo Z.E. Will Go Further Than Previously Anticipated


Renault‘s website states a new and what appears to be the final WLTP range ratings for the upcoming all-electric Renault Twingo Z.E.

This new entry-level model will be able to go 190 km (118 miles) in the combined range category, which is 10km or over 5.5% more than previously anticipated. In the city, where most of those cars will be used, the range will be 270 km (168 miles) – 20 km or 8% more than previously.

First deliveries for the Twingo Z.E. will start in late 2020, although it’s not expected to be a high volume model (on par with ZOE for example). At least not initially. Renault may treat the Twingo Z.E. like Volkswagen Group treats its triplets (Volkswagen e-up!, SEAT Mii Electric and Skoda CITIGOe iV) – they are a tool to lower the average emission (and meet the requirements), probably sold at a small loss if needed.
