RENAULT TWIZY TEST DRIVE + Video




Hey Guys
Weeeeeho, another Electric Vehicle I was able to test drive! This time the "different than the other ones"-looking Renault twizy. Continue reading for my review of the probably less powered Car I've ever driven...
As mentioned before 18 PS/ 13 kW are almost nothing. But I think the twizy can proof that you can even have fun with so less horses!

My test drive began on Saturday at 9am when I went to the Renault Dealer "Hafengarage" in Friedrichshafen.

Through The Car Addict's Facebook Page I've already asked you some days before for Questions you have or the things I should test. As I only had less than 45 minutes I for sure wasn't able to test EVERYTHING, but I found an answer for every of your Questions :) (see them here tomorrow!)

I then got the Key and the adventure could begin!
As I already drove some E.V.'s before (like the smart ED, iOn, mia e-scooter etc.) I knew what was awaiting me: put your foot on the brake, start the ignition and wait till either a symbol turns green or a 'beep' appears.
Same story with the twizy, the green "GO" signaled that the 13kW Electric Engine was ready to rumble.

I started driving slowly, every Car is different, and it accelerated not that much as I'm normally used to, but I was driving. And I don't know exactly why, but I was smiling all over my face. I can't describe the feeling it was - driving such an extra terrific Car and the Way the people looked at me. I bet every Lambo or even Bugatti would have looked lame against me inside the twizy - whats rarer? ;)

My first stop was already after a few meters - taking a picture and uploading it for you (it was this one) and checking again my seating position and so on to make it ready for my little journey.

Then I tried to test as much as possible, just like I normally would do it. So I drove on streets with a speed limit of 50, 70 and 100. As the maximum speed, I reached by myself, was at 85 km/h (50 mph) those 100 km/h street could have been a problem for me and the twizy, but thankfully there weren't so much people around and I wasn't a traffic obstruction!

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
