Renault has added to its trophy cabinet with Twizy winning Stuff magazine’s Tech Transport at their annual awards ceremony last night at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden, London.
Stuff magazine is the world’s largest gadget brand. Their Awards celebrate the best-performing hardware, software and accessories to have emerged in the previous 12 months. The Tech Transport category was hotly contested with competition from cars, pushbikes and motorbikes.
Stuff said, “The Twizy might well be the answer to a question that very few people were asking. But it’s an answer that’s delivered in such a charming, unusual way that it defrosts the hearts of all who see it. Drive it and that slightly condescending ‘aww’ turns into an excited ‘ooh’ as you realise how much of an urban weapon the Twizy really is – instant-on electric torque and a wheel at each corner combine to make every traffic gap an attainable goal. It’s brilliant.”
Andy Heiron, Renault UK’s Head of Electric Vehicles Programme, said: “I’m delighted to accept the Tech Transport award. Stuff’s recognition of the innovative Twizy is praise indeed. We’re confident that after experiencing the refined and responsive driving experience of a purely electric vehicle, combined with the financial and environmental benefits of switching to an electric vehicle, buyers are also smitten”
Twizy is the first-ever fully electric urban compact two-seater, combining bold design and bright styling while being incredibly fun and easy to drive – especially in a busy cities, where it can nip around and squeeze into the tightest spaces.
Renault Twizy comes with no road tax, costs only around £1 to fully charge and prices start from £6,690 plus a monthly battery lease cost of £45 including VAT for a 36 month/4,500 miles per year agreement.
