The Renault Twingo is back and on a mission to make EV affordable with a rumored prices of £17,000

How will the Twingo Compare to the Renault 5 and Renault 4?

It looks to be the smallest out of them all!

The Twingo is set to offer remarkable efficiency figures of up to 6.2 miles per kilowatt-hour, and over its lifetime will be responsible for 75 per cent less CO2 emissions than the “average European ICE car” sold in 2023. It will also be made in Europe and thanks to its low list price, Ampere claims the Twingo will be available from less than £90 per month.

The new Twingo will be designed, engineered and produced by Ampere – a separate division within the Renault Group that focuses on electric vehicles for the B and C-segments of the car market, and will be producing EVs that will wear the Renault badge and sit in the company’s showrooms.

Although specific technical details are yet to be disclosed, Ampere has already developed a specialized electric car platform named AmpR Small (formerly CMF-B EV) designed for B-segment models. This platform will be the foundation for the upcoming Renault 5 and 4 models, and it is reasonable to assume that the Twingo will also adopt this technology. Ampere is set to play a significant role in Renault's electric vehicle strategy, contributing to a lineup of seven European electric cars by 2031. This lineup includes models such as the Megane E-Tech, Scenic E-Tech, Renault 5, Renault 4, Twingo, and two additional vehicles. The company aims to achieve price parity between electric and internal combustion engine vehicles by 2027-2028. For its second-generation C-segment electric vehicles, such as successors to the Megane E-Tech and Scenic E-Tech, Ampere plans to reduce variable costs by up to 40%. The ambitious goal is to sell around 300,000 electric vehicles annually by 2025, with a further target of one million units by 2031. In addition to manufacturing the all-electric Renault 5 slated for release next year, as well as the upcoming Renault 4 and Twingo, Ampere will extend its production to include at least two models for the performance brand Alpine. The company is also involved in producing the next Micra for Nissan and supporting Dacia in its electrification endeavors. Renault Group's CEO, Luca de Meo, highlighted the company's commitment to making electric and connected cars accessible to a broad audience, emphasizing Ampere's role in addressing the energy transition imperatives and capitalizing on market growth opportunities. De Meo underscored Ampere's unique approach, characterized by an open and horizontal strategy involving best-in-class partners, ensuring adaptability, low risk, and intelligent capital allocation to navigate the rapidly changing and competitive automotive landscape.
