What is the real range of the Renault-Nissan Twizy and how to preserve its lithium-ion battery?

Quelle autonomie pour la Renault-Nissan Twizy et comment la préserver ?
As for all other vehicles, whether gas, diesel, electric or hybrid, the Twizy's range announced by the manufacturer Renault-Nissan does not correspond to any reality since consumption calculations are carried out in conditions no motorist ever know.
With its 7 kWh lithium-ion battery, Renault-Nissan claims that the Twizy can travel 100 km (62 mi) in standard but what is the reality? And what should we have to do to best preserve the range of an electric car?

like and share the Renault-Nissan Twizy in Quebec

Pour la Renault-Nissan au Québec
I created a Facebook page for the Renault-Nissan Twizy in Quebec.
I know it will not be easy given the powerful brakes that prevent small European cars to enter the North American market, but the success of a Facebook page could move the lines and the fact that the Twizy is now manufactured by Nissan can also make things easier as the Japanese manufacturer is well established.
So if you think we need to encourage the concept of Twizy, like and share this page!

My Twizy now has a real front hood! Version 2.1

Aucun commentaire :
As promised I made a further improvement on the front panel. I already had turned it into true small hood and now it is lockable!

This allows me to store with a little security some objects like a rag, a warning triangle or replacement lights.

The key lock comes from the right glove box where it had little use, given the fragility of its door. In my opinion it is even better that way because I can use the glove box without removing the ignition key. In addition,  this improvement  costs nothing.

My Twizy now has a real front hood! Version 1.0

I recently had troubles with the fasteners of the front panel. Facing such problems has one advantage : it forces us to think!

When trying to fix it, I thought that the system was originally not good, so why fix it instead of make it better?

A real car, it has a hood, so my Twizy must have a hood ... That's it!

And further improvements are planned by the end of the week!

How to strengthen the fasteners of the front panel?

Aucun commentaire :
fasteners are fragile...
In a previous article, I explained how to reach the brake liquid container and the front lights. To do so, it is necessary to remove the front panel and the problem is that its fasteners are fragile...
If, like me, you break a clip support, you have to put back in place the broken part with super glue like cyanoacrylate. But this will surely not resist a long time and anyway it will not make it most solid.
So, broken or not, I advise you to strengthen the clip supports... How? ... Read more >>

The Renault Twizy is a very simple electric vehicule but not always easy! There is no maintenance book explaining how to do the basic operations like changing a light or checking the brake fluid level. So I begin a serie of articles and videos that should be useful.
