Getting working download links for the free branded content that was released back in 2012 has been near impossible.
I was able to track down a working link to the original version of the twizy and it's charging station:
https://store.thesims3.com/productDetail.html?productId=OFB-SIM3:21359
https://store.thesims3.com/productDetail.html?productId=OFB-SIM3:21360

However, I have been unable to track down the New Renault Twizy ZE.

If anyone knows of a working link or can PM me information that would be most appreciated.

Additional info: This vehicle was part of a set labeled as Renaultset4.

I could be wrong, but.... after extensively going through a lot of pages...

I don't think that Twizy is a store item. I think the original Twizy is the free one you have the link to. The photo of the "new" Twizy you posted does not exist on any link related to Sims 3 actual store or page. I suspect it is a CC made from the original Twizy and can be found here: https://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5461299

The broken link in your post is suppose to be for the Renault "set" which doesn't seem to exist anymore, but as you have already found the individual items, you don't need the set.

Hmm quite the mystery...I found reference to the original page on some Japanese sites, that shows both types, half wheel covers and only on the top, with different headlights...

Edit:
Found a possible explanation soon as I posted. Maybe something was wrong with the file? It seems that they needed at some time to upload the file properly?

Great recommendation! Unfortunately downloading the original Twizy I linked and the Renault Twizy ZE Style from the exchange was no dice.

However looking at the Renault Twizy ZE Style Items requirements reveled that this Twizy ZE is a separate vehicle from the original.

Idk if it's it, haven't checked it in game or at all for myself so extra caution, but found a result for Renaultset4 for sims 3 DL.
It is a sims3pack file but, IDK whether it works or not or conflicts with the other one....?

It's not decraped so I could not view the package files to see if it is the right one.

@SakuraPhoenix
You are correct originally when this CC was released the download link for it was not working and had to be fixed. However, I know some people were able to download it. There's discussion of this vehicle on the forums.thesims however I am facepalming for not book marking the thread because I can't find it.

I tried the download you linked
https://thumbs.modthesims.info/getimage.php?file=1992575&thumb=1 (https://thumbs.modthesims.info/getimage.php?file=1992575)
Its described as (Renault Positive Energy Pack) in the launcher

More info:
ginger-sims made a ts3 to ts2 conversion of this CC Here (https://gingers-sims.tumblr.com/post/158778086802/renault-twizy-for-the-sims-2-ive-converted-some)

I decrapied it and just use multi-installer to view the packages. I can confirm there are 2 twizies in there. but I didn't try them in game though.

This is great! I wouldn't mind testing the file if you could share it. Do you think it will work now that it's decrapified?

I have absolutely no idea. But you can try it? But you will probably need store fix for package files conversion.

(So, uh disclaimer, this item is verified above as a free store item. If I am violating forum rule by uploading, my bad. I apologize.)

:lol: I have three Twizys in my purchase history including the positive energy one, I can see the logos and download them but not acess the details pages. There are also about seven Prius packs, it got very confusing! I put all of the promotional car sets here, (https://simfileshare.net/download/2376145/) many are not in the store to find any more. You'll need the Sims 3 recompressor to use them.

Are they 3 "different" Twizys? Like the 2 different models above?

Looks to be two different ones, but there are three packs- I think the one that's in the EV pack (the first one) was included in a second pack with a Renault Fluence, and I have a Renault Zoe from another pack. It's hard to see what each pack has included in it, maybe someone who has some Package tools installed could look at them to see. There is a charging station which is from the EV pack.
