Who owns a Renault Twizy

Renault Twizy as a garbage collector

No matter where you turn up with the Twizy, you will attract attention. Because Renault's electric quad is a real eye-catcher. If the standard version still seems too inconspicuous, the little city runabout can also be tuned. For example, the German ELIA team has presented an extensive range of accessories and tuning for the Twizy. The highlights include 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels with wheel covers and polished stainless steel parts, which are supposed to give the small Renault a touch of off-road feeling.

Rear carrier systems
However, the range of practical accessories seems even more interesting. For those who want to use the Twizy as a small packhorse, there is a really successful rear carrier system for numerous areas of application. Commercial providers can convert the speedster into a pizza mobile, for private individuals there are holders for drinks crates or sports accessories and municipalities can order special conversions such as for garbage cans.
