Presented at the 1992 Paris Motorshow and designed by Patrick Le Querment, the car went into production fully for sale in 1993 (this was quite common). It was replaced by the Twingo 2 (or 5) in 2007 but is still in production. The Twingo 1 had a facelifts in 1998, 2000 and 2004 and is one of the few Renaults not to follow the 6 year model rule (introduced, facelift after 4 years and replacement 2 years later). It followed on from the tradition Renault had of producing small budget cars to a good specification that were cheap and economical. This started with the 4CV /750, went on through the 4s and 5s and super five campuses and to the later 1.2 Clios and Clio Campuses. Total production up to 30 June 2007 was 2,478,648
An electric version was also made. It was initially built in Flins and then moved to Uraguay and Columbia.
Whilst only ever sold in LHD format (allegedly because the crank pulley got in the way of the only possible steering column route). All the manuals were published in English as well and Right Hand Drive Headlights were mad available and sold through the standard parts system (some are still available!)
April 1993 - Launched with only one trim level, and four colours, at a price of
55,000FF (about £5500).
The colour scheme and styling were aimed at the basis of the Twingo's name, Twist, Swing and Tango.
In a number of trim options.
Campus/Generation, Kenzo, Kiss Cool, Initiale
Engine 1.0L D7D I4 petrol
As with all Twingos a number of "fun" options rapidly became available to coordinate or clash with the colour coded interior.
Pre and post 1998 dashboards, mainly for the introduction of airbags.
Twingo 3? or maybe a new name?
