It’s a white van, but not as we know it. From today, the commercial vehicle world might never be quite the same again, after Renault unveiled Twizy Cargo.

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_6Taking the jaw-dropping shape and style of the standard Twizy, it swaps the rear tandem seat behind the driver for a load area with a lockable door. The new single seat Cargo version offers a 180-litre boot seamlessly integrated into the body and capable of accepting loads up to 75 kilos.

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_3It’s the perfect solution for companies offering callout or support services, like IT support, with the boot easily taking a set of tools securely and safely. Or, even a stack of large takeaway pizzas. The load area can also be accessed directly via the lockable door at the rear of the Twizy.

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_2It’s also a doddle to get in and out of, especially as the driver can get in from either side and get on the move, shaving even more time off multi-drop stops. It can also be parked simply and in the tightest of spots.  

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_1With 17 horsepower at its disposal, the chances of Twizy Cargo harassing other motorists in the outside lane are pretty limited. But, it’s got more than enough oomph to surprise tabloid-toting white van man in more urban conditions.

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_4Ideal as a runaround in all conditions, whether they’re urban, suburban, rural or even large depot site use, Twizy Cargo has a real-world range of around 50 miles. It can be topped up simply by using a standard three-pin plug, by way of the in-built charging cable. A full charge takes just three and a half hours.

Renault_Twizy_Cargo_7Like its larger brother, Kangoo Van Z.E., Twizy Cargo provides businesses with the opportunity to showcase their green credentials with a zero-emission vehicle (in road use), as well as helping to improve air quality, particularly in cities.
