WELL how’s this for your next van?
It’s the Renault Twizy Cargo.
Yup, the little Renault Twizy electric car has been adapted to commercial use.
Limited commercial use it must be said.
The Renault Twizy Cargo has just 180 litres of load capacity and a payload of 75kg via a lockable rear door. Enough to put the MINI Clubvan into haulier status.
But this car-derived van has a lot of charm, it’s eyecatching (always useful for promoting your company) and it’s cheap to run – plug it in and charge up the battery. A three and a half hour charge costs around £1.
The Renault Twizy Cargo has a real-world range of around 50 miles – so ideal for inner city use and carrying items between locations. It’s also exempt from the London Congestion Charge.
As well as small item local deliveries, we see the Twizy Cargo replacing motorcycle couriers in many instances.
The Renault Twizy Cargo costs £6,241.67 (ex VAT); plus, the VAT can also be reclaimed on its battery hire, from £36 per month (ex VAT).
Orders start from July.
