How tiny can a cargo van get before it's better described as a shopping trolley? Not much smaller than Renault's new electric Twizy Cargo, we suspect.
Based on the quirky-cool Twizy city car available in Europe, the Cargo does away with the commuter's single rear seat to create a compact storage area.
Compact is exactly what it is, too, with just 180 litres of space available and a maximum payload of only 75kg. So... just who is the Twizy Cargo supposed to appeal to?
Renault says the Cargo will be of interest to companies that need to navigate the congested and tight roads of European cities, bearing food and other consumables.
And, as has been trialled here in the form of the Melbourne CBD's "Motorcycle Paramedic Unit", the Cargo could also be used as a rapid response vehicle for emergency situations.
The Twizy Cargo will be offered with two power options: the 4kW Cargo 45 LIFE MA L6e, with a top speed of 45km/h, and the 12kW LIFE MB L7e that will hit a heady 80km/h.
Both will offer a driving range of around 50 to 80 kilometres, which should suit a day's work in any city centre.
