Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Renault Twingo ZE. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 11 hours 7 mph

All about the Renault Twingo ZE

Pricing

The Renault Twingo ZE has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £20,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Renault Twingo ZE is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,000. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Renault Twingo ZE is £17,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Renault Twingo ZE is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Renault Twingo ZE is 60 kW (80 hp). The maximum torque is 118 lb-ft. The Renault Twingo ZE is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 12.6 seconds. The top speed is 84 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Renault Twingo ZE has an estimated total capacity of 23 kWh. The usable capacity is 21.3 kWh. An estimated range of about 80 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 55 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 125 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 1 hour 15 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 3 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 11 hours.

Rapid charging is not possible.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Renault Twingo ZE is about 265 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 152 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 385 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 170 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Renault Twingo ZE emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
