Twizy joins Paris firefighter brigade

Co-developed by the manufacturer with its conversion subsidiary Renault Tech and the Paris firefighter brigade, it features an emergency equipment store instead of a rear seat, containing two fire extinguishers, two oxygen tanks, a fire suit, helmet and first aid kit.

The vehicle will be used for an eight-month trial in Paris and its suburbs, to help with temporary safety installations for major public events. Based on the results, the Paris firefighter brigade will review the long-term possibility of using a fleet of light electric vehicles.

Claire Petit Boulanger, tertiary safety officer at Renault commented: ‘This initial prototype is real-life proof of the research and development work carried out together with the emergency services, demonstrating Renault’s ability and determination to innovate to meet the needs of firefighters.’
