Happy New Year 2015 !

Why not make the vow to ride an EV this year?


Next time I'll check my letter to Santa Claus

Santa brought me, a little ahead, a powerful virus that freely decided to make me spend Christmas with water and without chocolate. I try to electronically survive from my bed since 3 days, but in real life, I hardly reach my cat activity level, who really sleeps 18 hours a day ...

In this made in China virus documentation, it is written:

Why not a Twizy pickup ?

2 commentaires :
There are pictures that make great noise in the Twizy fans's microcosm . They represent a Twizy transformed into a mini-truck with a detachable trailer, which gives a quadricycle with 6 wheels!
On my side, I think that a Twizy pickup would also have some chances, then by modifiing a little the 6-wheels Twizy picture, here is my Twizy "pickup" version...

Birth of Twizy Fans Tour!

Aucun commentaire :
Inspired by the Tour de France with a Twizy by Jean-Jacques Pierron, and widely supported by the Facebook "Twizy Fans Francophones ... or not" group, I start organizing a Tour of Europe in Twizys ... and relay ! 

The big difference with the Jean-Jacques Pierron's one is that "Twizy Fans Tour" will not be the performance of a single person or a single vehicle, but the expression of the strength of a community believing in EV in general, and in the Twizy in particular.

On my Twizy, even the mud is beautiful!

Aucun commentaire :
The floods that hit the Languedoc-Roussillon on 29 September 2014 (see video) left some big mud puddles on the roads.
Here is a nice effect of projection on the door ... Looks like the hyperspace, no ?

Reviews for a Year of Activism

Aucun commentaire :
This ending September 2014 is the first anniversary of an activity based on the certainty that the Twizy is a true "sandbox" like a box of Lego blocks. This is the opportunity to take a look in the mirror, to point out the good and bad points of a year rather mixed but busy ...

A bigger Twizy? Yes you can !

Aucun commentaire :
A larger Twizy to make it more useful seems to you desirable or necessary? This is possible in just 30 minutes, by installing yourself a MultiGo. Here is a video that shows how to set up this bike rack and luggage carrier I specifically designed for the Renault Twizy.
To see the video >>

MultiGo is only 150 € and it's solid! (tests and videos)

Aucun commentaire :
I made 2 videos that demonstrate the MultiGo's strenght. First static test with a load of 80 kg. Dynamic second test with a load of 25 kg and crossing speed bumps.

MultiGo, the brand new luggage and bicycle carrier, just for Twizy !

Aucun commentaire :

Convinced that the Twizy's future is to become more and more practical and useful, I have imagined an important evolution of Trigo: the MultiGo whose name comes from the fact that this luggage and bicycle carrier can take multiple positions, while the Trigo has only 3.

Pictures and explanations, this way ! >>

Renault Twizy: Battery rental rates up, public relation down

Aucun commentaire :

Up to 29%

Probably too obsessed by the "low mileage" contracts, I missed an important event : battery rental rates have increased !
When? I dont know and Renault obviously did is not boast. And this is not a small increase: up to 29%!
For a period of 36 months or more, here are the old and new rates and their variation...

Low mileage contracts: Renault says "Niet!" to pioneers

Aucun commentaire :

Niet!

Contrary to what was announced at the begining by the Renault press department (1), contrary to what was suggested since three months by  Mr Deloison, "electric vehicles" DIAC-Batloc department manager (2), contrary to the hopes of the people who works on the Renault Twizy project, contrary to the strong and just hopes of the Twizy owners, contrary to the interests of the brand itself as this decision will make it lose customers, starting by me, contrary to the evidence, Renault will not give its pioneers the benefit of the new contracts "low mileage" (those making less than 5,000 km per year).

TRIGO-LF !

Aucun commentaire :
A member of the excellent English forum Twizy Owners asked me the problem of transporting his golf bag; 17kg and above a little over 1 meter long with the clubs, which can not easily fit the Twizy's interior especially if your are two! 

Here is my solution, but since I do not play golf I simulated a golf bag with a trash bag that I filled with cartons having roughly the length of a club. I hope the merger will not shock the fans of this great sport!


The TRIGO (the modulable luggage rack) is in high position "bike rack".

Tour de France with a Twizy: the attack of the Alps!

Aucun commentaire :

In his Tour de France with a Twizy, after a thoroughly enjoyable way to Aulnoye-Aymeries (59), Douai and Belgium, despite the rain and tire problems, Jean-Jacques Pierron then experienced great difficulties in the Ile-de-France so much that he had to be towed for the first time due to a power failure at the foot of a Autolib station and with a valid subscription in his pocket ...


Poll Twizy and "low mileage" : all results and some surprises!

Aucun commentaire :
One of the Renault's arguments to explain why they refuse the new battery rental offers to the existing customers, was the low amount of interested people .
Double error! First, because the reactions were very violent and negative against Renault (see open letter to Mr. Nils Saclier), and secondly because the number of interested owners  is far from being so small ... The proof with this poll !

The "Tour de France" of Jean-Jacques Pierron with a Renault Twizy has begun!

Aucun commentaire :
Jean-Jacques Pierron had the strange idea to take a tour of France with an electric 2-seats vehicle whose real range is only 50 miles ! Maybe it is a little bit to wring the neck of some received ideas that Jean-Jacques went into this adventure, knowing that this is not his first attempt, since he already achieved a long journey in the south of France last year.
