Twizy could be first Renault in North America in ages
French Automaker Last Sold North American Vehicles in 1987
Renault has been in discussions with Canadian transportation officials about meeting regulations necessary to get approval to sell a small number of Twizy urban EVs in Canada. The Twizy delivers 17 horsepower and has a top speed of about 50 miles (80 kilometers Canadian) per hour.
A return for Renault to North America in the form of the Twizy, which started being exported to the UK about three years ago, would be a bit of a surprise because Renault-Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has consistently denied that Renault would return to the continent. Renault stopped North American distribution in 1987, when its US parent AMC (maker of such fine automobiles as the Gremlin, Javelin and Pacer) was sold to Chrysler.
