Renault Twizy coming to South Korea later this year

Renault Twizy coming to South Korea later this year

Renault Samsung Motors, the South Korean arm of French automaker Renault SA, will start to sell its Twizy small electric vehicle in South Korea later this year. Renault Samsung will use the Korean laws that allows people to drive ultra-small electric vehicles everywhere except on highways. To date, Renault Twizy could not be introduced in the Asian country because of stringent safety regulations. Renault Samsung says if the Twizy is well-received it may begin producing the EV at its lone production plant in Busan, which produces RSM’s SM3 ZE compact plug-in EV. The Twizy is 2,335 mm in length, 1,233 mm in width and 1,451 mm in height. It has a transport capacity of 180 liters and 75 kg and can run up to 100 km (62 miles) once fully charged. More than 15,000 units of the Twizy have been sold in Europe.
