What is the Twizy Renault Sport F1?

Renault is adapting actual current Formula One technology for use in its tiny Twizy electric car? Meet the Twizy Renault Sport F1 – it’s absolutely nuts.

Replacing the rear seat is the very same Kinetic Energy Recovery System – KERS – used by Renault’s championship-winning Formula One engines. Providing an 80hp boost, this effectively achieves a six-fold increase in the standard Twizy’s power output. So it can now accelerate as fast as a Megane Renaultsport hot hatch.
