Our readers from Spain might want to know that Renault has a special offer for those looking to buy a Laguna or the Espace. It seems that for any of the two big models Renault is offering for free the Twizy electrical car. Both the Laguna and the Espace are low-selling models for the French automaker, the reason why in February these have been axed from the United Kingdom lineup.

This special deal equates to a 6,990 Euros discount, suggesting that Renault's dealers have a very hard time selling the four-wheeled electric car. As a reminder, the Twizy is 2,320 mm long, 1,191 mm wide and stands 1,461 mm tall. It has a 20 hp (15 kW / 20 PS) electric motor with 42 lb.-ft. (57 Nm) of torque and weighs just 450 kg (990 lbs) with the 100 kg (220 lbs) battery pack included.

The Renault Twizy can provide a maximum range of about 60 miles (97 km) and a full charge at a regular 220V 10A outlet takes three hours.
