Twizy Way by Renault, the Twizy car-sharing service developed by Renault opens today in the urban community of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France).
A complement to public transport, this all-new electric mobility solution is easy-to-use and fun at the same time. It is a highly flexible and eco-friendly solution, offering a great deal of freedom.
In partnership with the urban community of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Twizy Way by Renault is a private service with public interest, which costs the taxpayer nothing, as operating (maintenance, vehicle charging, assistance, etc.) and parking are taken care of by Renault. The towns covered by the service (Montigny-le-Bretonneux, Guyancourt, Voisins-le-Bretonneux, and part of Trappes) have granted authorisation for use of the public domain and are helping to promote the service.
The service is open to anyone who has held a class B driving license for over 2 years. After payment of a €15 registration fee (a one-off payment), the user will receive a magnetic card giving access to some 50 Renault Twizy electric vehicles, distributed all over the urban community of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.
One of the concept’s main benefits is the fact that users don’t have to worry about charging the vehicle or about parking. Users enjoy complete freedom as they can leave the vehicle in any car park within the service zone. They can pick up the vehicle where they find it and leave it where they like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
With Twizy Way by Renault, the user pays only for actual use. There is no minimum amount. The price is €0.29/minute or €11.90 for a full hour’s use.
Twizy Way by Renault is transparent – there are no hidden costs. Everything is included in the price – rental, energy, insurance, vehicle maintenance and parking within the service zone.
Users can instantly find out where the nearest available Renault Twizy is parked in real-time using a smartphone application or the web.
Using Twizy couldn’t be easier – users can pick one up immediately by flashing the QR code on the vehicle, or they can book the Twizy of their choice on the web or using their smartphone, no more than 15 minutes before using it. Anything is possible and everything is easy with Twizy Way by Renault.
100% electric and with zero emissions during use, Renault Twizy is particularly well-suited to new forms of urban mobility. It is easy-to-use and takes up very little space. Twizy’s road-handling is both playful and reassuring, with its four wheels and their disk brakes. Passive security has not been neglected, as there is a driver airbag, a four-point seat belt at the front and a three-point seat belt at the rear.
Every vehicle in the Twizy Way by Renault fleet is fitted with:
– a badge reader to enable start-up and to measure journey time
– a geolocalisation system to identify the Twizys available for rent and indicate their level of charge
– an emergency call button (24/7) connecting to a dedicated call centre
– a QR Code which is flashed using a smartphone for immediate departure
