The Renault Twingo will also arrive in a neoretro version

electric Renault Twingo

Renault is very aware of how present nostalgia is in the world of four wheels. And, although it is true that the safety and technology of cars have evolved to levels unimaginable 10 or 15 years ago, charisma has not managed to slipstream... For this reason, the rhombus brand is collecting the essence of icons that They were born in the last quarter of the XNUMXth century to build their range for the nearest future. One more proof of this? He Renault Twingo neoretro which it plans to manufacture together with a Chinese group.

As they already did with the Renaults 5 E-Tech y 4EVER Trophy, the Gauls want to announce sooner rather than later what would become new access member in its zero emissions catalog. All of them, of course, would share the characteristic of being 100% electric models and, although until recently it seemed difficult to bring the Twingo to life, everything could have changed for the better in recent weeks.

After the "no" from Volkswagen... a "yes" from the Chinese?

Taking on the development of this new electric urbanite alone was not a real option for Renault, which is why They sought to ally with Volkswagen and Stellantis to produce it in a triangular shape. However, the latter did not even want to listen and those from Wolfsburg, after some meetings, decided not to look beyond their ID family.

After the double rejection, the French manufacturer planted the idea in an Asian consortium... and now it could be beginning to reap fruits. Although there is still not much information about Renault's possible "new friend", it is known with certainty that it would be a chinese group. If we agree, it would not be unreasonable to think a priori about Geely, because just a few days ago they presented their new joint project in our country (Horse Powertrains), but the truth is that, today, listing names would involve nothing more than making conjectures.

Whoever they are, the priority objective would be to find a way to launch the new Twingo neoretro at a price that is below 20.000 euros, offering the market a real affordable electric mobility alternative. Within three or four years, if everything goes as planned, the new Twingo would join a list in which the ID.1 will also have a lot to say. We'll see how things turn out...
