Modified Renault Twizy works as an electric early-response vehicle
And if you’ve been thinking the Renault Twizy electric city car to be nothing more than a seemingly cramped-up way to travel around your neighborhood, think again! The French automaker has just unveiled a firefighting version of this tiny car that could somewhat do the job of a full-fledged fire-truck!
Built by Renault and its vehicle conversion subsidiary Renault Tech with help from the Paris Fire Brigade, this modified Twizy can double up as an early response vehicle and packs a storage trunk complete with two fire extinguishers, two oxygen tanks, a fire suit and helmet, and a first aid kit. Of course you wouldn’t expect an electric car as such to hose down a burning house. But then again, this little car will make its way through heavy traffic long before the chunky fire-truck does, and could help put rescue operations in place beforehand!
