2018 Renault Twizy Rumors and Review – Twizy Renault Sport F1 is much more than attention finding and catching concept car, however. Furthermore to its magnificent look, it provides genuine powerful thanks to its Kinetic Energy Restoration System (KERS) which is equivalent to the solution used by Renault-powered Solution 1 cars. The system instantly boosts electricity output six-fold to reach almost 100 horsepower and is with the capacity of catapulting the car from standstill to 100kph as quickly as Renault’s highest-performing road car, Meganne R.S. This scientific jewel is the fruit of close collaboration between designers at Renault Sport Systems and their co-workers at Renault Sport F1.
2018 Renault Twizy Redesign
Having a weight of 564kg, the Twizy F1 is approximately 91kg heavier when compared to a standard Twizy. However, the power-to-weight percentage of the Twizy F1 was much upgraded because of the addition of the KERS system with 1bhp per 5.8kg set alongside the standard Twizy’s 1bhp per 25kg.
2018 Renault Twizy Engine
Twizy Renault Sport F1 is subsequently equipped with two electric motors, i.e. Twizy 80’s original electric motor (17hp/13kW) onto which an F1-style KERS has been grafted to carefully turn the idea car into an authentic pocket rocket with exceptional performance qualifications.
When the KERS is turned on, Twizy Renault Sport F1’s power result climbs instantly by a factor of six, from 17 to 97 horsepower (72kW). This raise is designed for roughly 14 seconds, as it is in the case of a Formula 1 car. Thanks to this additional electric power, the idea car is with the capacity of accelerating from standstill to 100kph in once as Meganne R.S.
When the machine is triggered, the maximum revs of Twizy’s motor unit rise to 10,000rpm for a high speed of 110kph. The super fruit of advanced technology, the MGU-K will fit inside a 10cm-diameter cylinder and can rev to up to 36,000rpm. The KERS is equipped with its own power supply capable of very short fee/discharge cycles. Derived directly from F1 technology, the deal weighs scarcely 30kg, power supply included.
Given that the maximum revs of the KERS and Twizy’s main electric motor are 36,000rpm and 10,000rpm respectively, the connection between the two was one of the chief issues of the task. Synchronization is ensured by a 1:3.6 reducer gear which uses the same drive products as that of the F1 V8 engine.
