Renault Twizy Visits Portuguese Universities

The Renault Twizy Roadshow has reached Portugal and is on show there until May 23rd at 16 universities. Two normally silent premises, the library and faculty of science in Lisbon are currently loud with the sound of students interested in the all but silent Twizy electric quadricycle, used to demonstrate the effective lack of noise EVs bring to an environment.

18,000 students will get the chance to try out electric motoring with two Twizy versions; one limited to 80kph which requires a driving licence to drive and the other limited to 45 kph but only available in select countries and does not require a driving licence.

Coinciding with these road tests, an event has been organized on Facebook, along with a competition in which students are being encouraged to film their test drive to try and win a trip to Ibiza.
