Renault has handed over the keys to ten Twizys to Groupama Team France competing for the 35th America’s Cup. The handover marks the launch of Renault’s tiny electric car in Bermuda. The first ten Twizys will be used by the team to commute from their base to the America’s Cup venue.
Renault is the EV market leader in Latin America, with the largest range of zero emission cars available to customers. More than 500 units have already been sold there since 2012 and Renault Twizy tops the ranking as the region’s best-selling EV. Renault’s EV model range also includes the ZOE supermini – which tops EV sales in Europe – and the Kangoo Van Z.E., which is also the top-selling model in its segment.
Louis Viat, Logistics, Groupama Team France, commented:
“Renault Twizy represents the best alternative to public transport or self-service scooters. We are very proud to be the first users of Twizy on the island and to promote the positive impact of electrical cars to preserve the beauty of Bermuda.”
