New Delhi, Jan 4 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday inaugurated the Twizy Z.E. Concept, a new electric car from the stables of Renault, which will be out on Indian roads by 2011.

This blue and white coloured car is a two-seater car, which works on the green technology principle.

Welcoming Renault's new car with enthusiasm, Dikshit said that Delhi roads would be much better off with electric cars as this.

"They are developing this new technology; Renault is introducing this at the automobile exhibition.

They are still developing it. It is very beautiful to look at and they are saying it will take them one or one and a half year more to come out, then we will give as many incentives as we can to such cars to run on Delhi roads which do not contribute to the pollution." said Dikshit.

The General Manager of Renault India Marc Nassif was also present on the occasion and talked of his company's commitment to green technology.

"First, our commitment to green technology and less particularly we call it zero emission, is obviously a world-wide commitment and their... alliance is the first one who has really invested in commitments and especially on battery technology," said Nassif.

New Delhi will host the 10th edition of the Auto Expo beginning from tomorrow. The model of the Renault's Twizy Z.E. Concept will be displayed at the expo. (ANI)
