The French based automaker Renault has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the Twin-Z Concept.

The Renault Twin-Z Concept is an electric supermini which is previewing the next generation of the Twingo. The model has a five-door rear-drive hatchback concept form and it will be officially presented to the public sometimes next month. The Renault Twin-Z Concept, unlike the Twingo, is using an electric motor in order to get from A to B, not a combustion engine, like its older brother. The model is getting 67 BHP and 167 lb-ft of torque, enough to allow the 3,623 mm long and 980 kg car to reach a top speed of 81 km/h.

Renault says that the Twin-Z Concept has been designed in collaboration with Ross Lovegrove. The model is coming with suicide doors, with interior lights following the contours of the cabin, with seven thin and light seats wrapped in water proof and fire-retardant material, an infotainment system from a tablet mounted in the middle of the dashboard. The final production version of the Renault Twingo, which will be based on the Twin-Z Concept, will rival the Fiat 500 and MINI.
