Renault has its quadricycle Twizy as a compact urban solution with futuristic design language and electric powerhouse. Recently, Renault launched Renault Sport F1 variant with chunky wheels and F1 inspired livery. Now, it is launching a more sensible ‘Cargo’ variant.

The Twizy Cargo is technically a grown-up shopping cart with a driver seat. The passenger seat of the Twizy city model has been sacrificed to carve out a mere 180-litre boot with a maximum load capacity of 75kg. The boot is accessible via a rear door that opens at 90 degree for easy loading.

Renault claims that this new variant will be a handy option for intracity delivery businesses where traffic and parking space are a real headache and for the various emergency services too. Renault also praises its compact dimension and all-electric drive for being a viable option for city commutes.
