RENAULT TWIZY GETS A SLICE OF DOMINO’S ACTION
Pizza delivery expert Domino’s will be serving up the hottest slices in town after taking delivery of a pair of super-stylish Renault Twizys.
The Swindon franchisee from the popular UK chain has become the latest high-profile customer for the eye-catching, two-seat electric compact. Unsurprisingly, resplendent in contrasting Domino’s liveries, both are being used to ensure that the precious hot cargo arrives swiftly and safely for local pizza deliveries from his stores.
Domino’s delivers until 5am all over Swindon and the surrounding areas, so the super-quiet Twizy, which also happens to be highly economical, is perfect for nipping around residential areas without waking up the neighbours. It’s also a doddle to park and zip around in, thanks to scissor doors and dimensions of less than two and a half metres in length and one and a half metres in width. The head-turning Renault is also helping Domino’s achieve its company targets of reducing carbon emissions, thanks to zero from the “tailpipe”. To top it all off, there’s no road tax or fuel bills for Domino’s to worry about – the battery is simply charged using a standard 13 amp socket, giving an official range of up to 60 miles.
James Swift, franchisee of Domino’s in Swindon, said: “We are extremely happy with our Twizys as for us they are the perfect run around for delivering our piping hot pizzas quickly, responsibly and most importantly with minimal running costs. They are quite a head turner too, so it creates a great buzz for us as we like to do things differently.”
Jason Derry, Pro+ Manager at Fish Brothers Renault who supplied the Twizy twins, added: “Domino’s is a great example of an established and popular local company and we were glad to be able to offer them something a bit different. The Twizy has stirred up a huge amount of interest since it has arrived, so it will be great to see them driving round Swindon in their distinctive livery.”
Twizy is the world’s first mass market fully-electric compact two-seater, combining head-turning design with more than a little driving fun. It comes in a choice of three trim levels: Urban, Colour and Technic, priced from £6,690 including VAT. Battery hire is available from £45 per month including VAT.
