The Renault Twizy Z.E electric car concept will make its first European test drives on the virtual streets of The Sims 3. While the real world Renault Twizy Z.E concept debuted at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, it’s not expected to hit the road until 2012 so driving it in The Sims 3 is your best bet for the time being.
If you’re wracked with guilt about your own extravagant lifestyle, you can at least invest in an electric car for your Sims. The Renault Twizy Z.E electric car will be available as a free Sims 3 download pack and come with a bunch of other eco-conscious kit like solar panels and windmills.
In a clever bit of pro-electric car propaganda, using the Renault Twizy Z.E electric car will benefit your Sims in The Sims 3 reducing their weekly bills.
The Sims 3 Electric Vehicle Pack will arrive as a free download next month. Check out the videos above with a Renault executive hopping into the Sims 3 world to deliver the Renault Twizy Z.E announcement in Simlish zooming around in Sims world.
We’re all for adding green tech into The Sims 3 but while the Renault Twizy Z.E is nice, we think the Honda 3R-C Tron trike would make even eco-friendly virtual transport.
