The line-up includes the Twizy Z.E. city runabout and the slightly more practical Zoe Z.E. small hatchback, both of which Renault described as “close to production concepts”.

Despite the “concept” coding, both cars will make it onto roads - according to Renault. But the launched versions may look and handle slightly differently.

Twizy is powered by a 15kW/70Nm (20bhp/52lb-ft) electric motor, has a top speed of 45mph and driving range of just over 60 miles.
