Renault Twingo Eco – Click above for high-res image gallery

Before Renault can launch its fifth battery-powered model – an electrified version of its Twingo minicar dubbed the Twingo Z.E. – the vehicle it's based on will have to debut and that's the next-gen Twingo, which is scheduled to launch sometime in the second half of 2014.

Aside from that electrified version, Autocar reports that the next-gen Twingo will likely launch with Renault's 0.9-liter, three-cylinder gasoline engine that debuted in the automaker's R-Space concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Renault rated that three-cylinder gasser at 110 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. The automaker says that pint-sized mill emits 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer and returns 64 miles per gallon.

Despite reports to the contrary, Autocar still insists that the next-gen Twingo will spawn a sister vehicle, the Smart Forfour. We're not so sure about that.
