Built on a platform designed from the outset for the full electric, the sparkling car matches the design of the sister as a heat engine. Thanks to its battery of 22 kWh, provide to the mother house – can roam the whole city for a whole week with one charge. The battery consists of lithium-ion cells of the latest generation developed in partnership with LG Chem. Is installed in the vehicle in a way that does not modify the habitability general nor the volume of the trunk, while its thermal management is guaranteed by a water-cooling system: an absolute novelty for the range of Renault Z. E.
The powertrain – engine, gearbox, charger is inherited by the New ZOE and produced at Cléon, in Normandy, on the lines that already produce other electric motors, Renault and its partners, and offers the small city car, the energy efficiency of everything about it. The car is assembled at the plant of Novo Mesto in Slovenia, from whose assembly lines out of all the versions of the Twingo.
The engine of 60 kW (82 hp) and delivers a maximum torque of 160 Nm available immediately. The acceleration from 0 to 50 km/h is done in just 4 seconds, while top speed is 135 km/h allows you to travel on the freeways and highways. The Twingo Z. E. has a driving mode “B-Mode”, thanks to which the driver can choose between three levels of regenerative braking that engage not just release the accelerator pedal. In this setting, the more extreme, the car decelerates so decided, regenerating, so the battery more quickly, limiting the appeal to the brake and simplifying city driving. Vice versa, the adjustment is more soft and let the car continue to go without losing momentum, almost as if to proceed to inertia.
The newcomer offers approximately 250 km of autonomy in cycle WLTP City and 180 kilometres in the cycle WLTP Complete. If you consider that the owners of city cars, compact in Europe average about thirty miles a day, this autonomy allows urban routes for a week without recharge. The Eco Mode- activated by a button located on the centre console – allows you to reach a range of around 215 km on mixed routes, thanks to the limits of acceleration and maximum speed on the roads to the great scroll.
But that's not all. With its intelligent charger Caméléon patented by Renault, the Twingo Z. E. charging at home, at work or in the infrastructure that is in alternating current (AC) up to 22 kW. This technology enables it to adapt to the available power of the individual columns, and to maximize the charging infrastructure existing, especially in the city: just a half-hour break that is connected to a column from 22 kW to acquire approximately 80 km of autonomy in the mixed cycle.
To offer EASY CONNECT base, the Twingo Z. E. will add a few services designed by Renault for the electric vehicles. The integrated system EASY-LINK allows you, for example, to program the charging to take the maximum advantage of off-peak times. Once for the road, displays on a map the radius of action of the drive in real-time and, on request, the charging stations nearest to you with their availability updated in real-time.
the outside of the vehicle through the App MY Renault, the driver can see the battery level during charging and programming the remote the air-conditioner or the heating, to bring the passenger compartment to the desired temperature without impact on the autonomy of the car.
is, as always, the usual question: how much is all of this? It is still too early to know, the parent reserves the right to communicate the availability and price at a later time, close to the market.
