Renault is preparing to unveil another new concept next month, on the heels of its recent Twizy RS F1 and Twin'Z show cars.

The new concept will bring the Twin'Z concept closer to reality, revealing a more market-friendly look at the car likely to become the next Twingo light car.

These latest teaser images also leave little doubt on the identity of the new concept, with the so-called TwinFun spied last month during filming in Spain.

What we've seen of the next Twingo - through the Twin'Z and the coming TwinFun - suggests the carmaker is planning to revive the retro appeal of the little Renault 5 of the 1980s.

Little has been revealed about the new Twingo, although it is known the light hatch will share its platform and mechanical package with Daimler's new Smart ForTwo.

If true, that means buyers can look forward to a rear-mounted engine setup and a rear-wheel-drive configuration.

In concept form, the Twin'Z is powered by a rear-mounted 50kW electric motor, drawing energy from a bank of four lithium-ion batteries beneath the floor.

Unlike the electric Twin'Z, the spied TwinFun concept sports a centre-mounted exhaust outlet, suggesting a more conventional petrol engine is tucked behind the bumper.

While the TwinFun likely represents the next Twingo RS, the 'regular' model should appear in the coming months.

An Australian debut for the new Twingo is unclear, and right-hand-drive availability of the current model did not help it gain a local debut.

Don't expect to hear word on Australian plans until the new model makes its official international debut.
