Solid Windows For Your Renault Twizy from £299
Drive a dryer, warmer, safer Twizy
The Renault Twizy, Twizy Cargo & Nissan Scoot versions are fantastic electric cars but when the weather turns cold or wet, the lack of windows becomes a real issue. Well now you can drive all year round in comfort with our easy fit Twizy Windows.
My name is Andrew Park and as you can see from this website my main business is actually PowerSwitch.com. I bought a Twizy to promote our website but I live in Scotland and needed windows to deal with the unpredictable weather. I searched for a solution to make the Twizy a more comfortable drive & looked at various designs. Some used flimsy fabric or involved drilling the car body & damaging the car. Others spoilt the cool look of the Twizy or had gaps at the rear allowing rain in or trim obscuring the view out. The most solid designs were so enclosed heat, ventilation and misting could be a problem.
I have an Industrial Design Degree so I decided to develop a solution somewhere between a window and a motorcycle fairing. I then approached a manufacturer and together we fine tuned our design. With our windows your Twizy looks just the same with windows as without. They are now used all round the world by Twizy owners in the UK, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, Malta, Portugal, Finland, Germany and the United Arab Emirates.
Our Copyright protected Twizy Windows fit on the 3 bolt heads already in the door lining. They consist of two CNC machined Lexan sheets, with dual density rubber trim round the curved edges. Previously we used Velcro straps attached to two discs made of industrial grade adhesive backed plastic Velcro stuck to the frame. We use magnets to make the windows easier and quicker to open and close. The window material is machined & cold formed to fit under your Renault Twizy door bolts without any modification to the car. Just install with a Torx screwdriver by loosening the three bolts on the inside of the doors. Slot the windows in, re-tighten the bolts, stick the mounts to the frame and the metal disc to the window and GO!
Easy To Fit
Fitted or removed in 10 minutes
Twizy Windows require no specialist skills and can be fitted easily by anyone with a star ( Torx ) headed screwdriver.
They are removable in 5 minutes in hot dry weather and can be stored at home or in the car when driving. Not only do they provide weather protection they improve security. Now you can leave items inside and they will still be there when you return; you wont find strangers sitting in your car either !
Twizy Windows use the same material as crash helmet visors. Solid at speed and safe in impacts, they won't shatter. They are made of robust 3mm thick Lexan and you can upgrade them with a clear MARGUARD coating on both sides, which is more scratch and fog resistant long term. They provide more protection to occupants heads in side impacts, object & bird strikes or rollovers. Each window weighs just 1.5kg so it wont slow your Twizy's performance. There is no frame to obstruct your mirrors or create dangerous blind spots. Our design encloses the rear of the door blocking out rain & wind for passengers too.
Windows improve your Twizy's battery range
After over three years of driving we noticed on long high speed journeys the Twizy's range improved by up to 10% with windows. It appears they reduce the turbulence in the cabin which creates drag on the Twizy. The windows smooth airflow reducing the amount of battery power required to maintain speed on motorways.
Increase security by locking others out
Twizy Windows give you a balance of protection from snow, wind, dust and dirt whilst still venting the vehicle. They keep the worst of the weather out. The greenhouse effect of sun heats the car whilst the apertures at the mirrors maintain indirect airflow. Condensation is minimised; visibility is maximised. You can open doors from the outside and adjust the mirrors from inside. The vent gaps also deflect air over the window ( not into the interior) and enable you to use ticket machines, road tolls or smoke while you're driving. When opening or closing doors press the door handle and apply light pressure with your hand to the centre of the window. The windows flex and clear the frame as the door opens. We recommend you avoid letting Lexan rub against the Twizy shell when opening and closing. Lexan can scratch like a helmet visor and should be treated with similar care.
Do we supply windows without the holes at the mirrors? We can supply windows on request without the holes but you need to consider..
1. How to reach the door handle inside ?
2. The front edge of the window will sit outside the Twizy wind deflector forcing cold air thru the gap into the cabin ( an issue with Renault’s windows).
