Renault Twizy gets windows

The electric Renault Twizy city car now features a pair of optional windows.

The electric Renault Twizy city car now features a pair of optional windows. At present, all Twizys are open to the elements, but Renault has added a zip-on plastic window option, which will be available at dealers from the end of November.

The Twizy windows are priced at £295 for the pair and come in two parts: a metal frame that attaches to the car’s door, and a zip-on piece of transparent plastic that helps to keep a little more of the winter chill from entering the Twizy’s interior.

A flap in the plastic window allows occupants to access the Twizy’s door handles, while the window also contains a vent so that the windscreen doesn’t mist up (the Twizy doesn’t have a heater).

Renault claims that the new windows require no tools to fit, and can be easily removed. The French company has also confirmed that the Twizy’s windows have been tested extensively to ensure that they are resistant to UV light, corrosion and low temperatures.

The Twizy is a small, electric-only, two-seater city car that comes in a choice of three equipment levels: Urban, Colour and Technic. Prices start at £6,690 and buyers also have to hire the Twizy’s batteries at £45, including VAT, per month.
