The replacement for the Renault Twizy thinks of people with reduced mobility

The replacement for the Renault Twizy thinks of people with reduced mobility

For more than two years, the Citroën AMI has been thwarting sales forecasts and upsetting the rules of the car market without being registered. The appeal this little electric two-seater has for high schoolers — and their parents, who prefer it to the more dangerous scooter — expands the license-free car’s audience beyond the traditional target of older and young professionals who have never seen the took the time to get a driver’s license.

Between 2012 and 2019, before the arrival of this Citroën, an average of 12,000 cars per year were registered in France without a license. In six months, the market has grown to 15,000 registrations in 2020 due to the success of AMI alone. Then to 22,000 registrations in the first quarter of 2022, including 5,951 for Citroën, which has risen to become the second manufacturer behind French Aixam.

Converted to electric, the license-free car finds its place in the reorganization of city traffic

What is Renault waiting for to respond to this outrageous success? As of June 2021, the “New Mobility” business unit Mobilize announced that it was working on the realization of its electric four-wheeler project. A model was then presented showing what the Renault Twizy legacy could look like: always two-seater tandem (instead of arranged side by side as in the Citroën AMI), but significantly wider (1.30 meters wide by 2.43 m long). And above all, significantly improved protection against the effects of the weather thanks to glass doors and heated seats.

Some fourteen months later, this little car, known as the Mobilize Duo (and Mobilize Bento, for its utilitarian variant), is still not ready to go head-to-head with the Citroën AMI. The prototype, which will be on display to attendees at the Paris Motor Show (October 18-23, 2022), specifies “95%” of a final model that will not be launched until the end of 2023. It’s long.
