French car maker Renault announced it will return to the Canadian marketplace this summer with a two-seater called the Twizy.
The all-electric car, or quadricycle as Renault calls it, has a maximum speed of 40 km/h, which makes it only usable on city streets. It is a cross between a moped and a car.
Renault announced the car was certified by Transport Canada Friday. The company will partner with AZRA Canada, which specializes in electric charging infrastructure, to sell the Twizy. Renault will launch the car April 15 in Montreal, at which point it is expected we'll learn more about pricing an other specifications.
Renault last sold cars in North America in 1987 when it sold the remains of American Motors Corp. to Chrysler.
