It is worth mentioning here that the second seat is very narrow, and a persopn with average height can barely fit there. The front seat is adjustable, it still doesn't help much.

Twizy is a popular car in the European market, said the company. It was brought to India to give the customers a glimpse of the company's innovation in the e-vehicle space.

Once charged fully, the 6.1 kilowatt-hour battery gives Twizy a range of upto 100 km. It take around four hours to charge fully.

A cargo version of the car has also been launched by Renault, which replaces the second seat at the back with cargo shelf. The vehicle is used to transport small stuff at superstores and warehouses.

The car takes a while to pick up speed, but can go really fast. The company is giving free test drives of the car at the Auto Expo.

The company doesn't plan to launch Twizy in India. It is a low-speed short-range transport option in urban centres meant for last-mile connectivity.

In practical terms, the Twizy came across as a vehicle in which a person can go grocery shopping. The second available seat, when unoccupied, can accommodate a couple of gracery bags.
