Get busy with the Twizy as car is the future

T HIS is the first vehicle I’ve driven makes any sense. It’s how EVs be, commuter-only cars which are to buy and run.

Every other EV driven seems to be trying to be it is not a normal car and they have tags plucked from land. A Mitsubishi i-MiEV is the part of £30,000, the Nissan even more. The Renault is a slightly more reasonable and you lease the batteries, but frankly if that car was free I still want it.

But this one, the Renault is great. For one thing it costs £6,690 but the best thing it is its design. The other EVs pretend to be four-door family vehicles but of they aren’t because are so limited in range.

This car is unashamedly a commuter-only car and surely is exactly the market it is aimed at so why not it with those customers in

Let us look at its facts and figures You can recharge its battery from a pin plug in about three and a hours which Renault costs about £1 in and that gives you a range of up to 60 Bear in mind that a of fuel costs around and will give you, in a good diesel, a range of 15 and the economics look good.

One financial argument against EVs is you need another car because range is so restricted If you’re £20,000 to £30,000 and then to buy a second car as well it’s expensive, but if you’re only around £7,000 it becomes more feasible.

Scarily the can legally run on a motorway but I would not it. I tested it in its more natural the busy traffic around in case Hanley.

On a perfectly foul day its limitations immediately clear you get wet because of the of side windows. It’s OK you’re moving but if you stop at lights the wind and rain blow in. I wouldn’t have it’s a big thing for Renault to but I did spot in the options list you can buy a driver and passenger blanket for I think I’d buy a big waterproof

The ride is quite hard and if you it the 13 inch Continental tyres offer a huge amount of on greasy roundabouts. My other is there is a huge blind when reversing, but you can have fitted.

But it scoots along quite with other traffic and I never felt intimidated by vehicles around me. I was quite with the size of the ‘bubble’ me on the road and other drivers enthusiastically, rather than at the Twizy. I think I would a bright colour though, to make it more visible.

I it because, as a commuter car, the makes so much sense. It is a single seater although is a little seat behind for shopping bags or a briefcase and I at a pinch you could fit a small passenger there. But let’s be when you look around in the hour there are a great of single occupancy vehicles just one person sitting in a car for four or five.

What a waste of metal, and road space.

You lease the on the Twizy from £45 a based on a 4,500 miles a year contract and this is by far the sensible option. It means if anything goes wrong are replaced (the car has a 100,000 warranty anyway) or even if drop below 75 per cent Renault will replace Apart from peace of it helps the residual values

It’s novel, it’s and to me it is entirely logical and in a wider it points the way towards the type of car a lot more manufacturers should be of building and a lot more of us should be of buying.

The Twizy isn’t perfect, are compromises but it is the first electric car I would consider owning.
