charles pic twizy way

This isn't the first time the name F1 has been twisted with Twizy, but it's the first time that we know of that an F1 driver has gone to check out the all-electric Twizy Way carsharing effort.

Charles Pic, who races with the Caterham F1 Team partnered by Renault, went to the "Twizy Way community" in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France, near Paris recently to check out the program as well as show off the Renault Sport F1 Twizy, which is a Twizy that has been modified with things like a KERS system, racing tires and steering wheel and other F1-style technologies.

The F1 Twizy needed to use the back seat to fit in the performance components, but in the regular Twizy's used for carsharing, Pix took four lucky winners around in the two-seat, tandem-style EV as he cruised the streets. We assume at street-legel speeds.

June 17, 2013

On Saturday, June 15, Charles Pic, a young driver with the Caterham F1 Team partnered by Renault, came to share his interest in new mobility solutions with the Twizy Way community in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines near Paris. His drive enabled him to share the fun, innovative, responsible self-service car sharing service with the municipalities of Montigny-le-Bretonneux, Voisins-le-Bretonneux and Guyancourt. Four winners of a competition launched by Twizy Way got a chance to drive with him in a Twizy.

Over the course of the day, Charles Pic also demonstrated the performances of the incredible Renault Sport F1 Twizy, a full electric racing car inspired by F1 technology.
