Renault Twizy: Why I Am Just A Bit Disappointed, Again.

I got rather excited the Renault Twizy when its statistics came out. All of a there seemed to be an electric car stood up as a commuter’s proposition at a sensible price.

Yesterday I had my ‘proper’ look round the Twizy. I opened the door, sat in it, the buttons on the dashboard and generally had a play. Unfortunately, like electric cars I came with a slight sense of

The Twizy looks quite in all of the press pictures and it has a range of 130 which can almost be described as for its use as an urban vehicle. The price is pretty good, with the Technic only costing in the UK, for which you get alloy wheels, paint and a carbon fibre roof on top of the standard driver and disc brakes all round.

can be commended for including the Twizy in its 4+ which includes servicing and a year warranty, as standard. The stack up even better you bear in mind that it costs £1 to charge the All of a sudden the daily commute, in urban traffic will not be as frustrating.

However, it is not long before the start to fall down and about the viability of the Twizy to kick in. The Twizy is powered by of course, and these need to be from Renault at the princely sum of a month for 6000 miles per This means that rockets to nearly ten pence per and that is pretty close to the of a ‘normal’ economical supermini.

When you also realize the that the Twizy only with two seats, and that if you plump for the optional doors cost £455 you still get any windows meaning a jacket is I also would not fancy the Twizy though a town late on a Friday night, the chance of a stray kebab through the aperture always a possibility.

The Twizy also feels flimsy, the doors are not structural so that can be forgiven, and the weight is a 474kg so it feels nippy. it tops out at 50mph and I wouldn’t comfortable having an accident at a relatively low speed.

The Twizy’s of usability is further determined by the that it lacks a radio and although the latter can probably by virtue of the lack of windows.

I retain a soft spot for the but it still does not compare to the of a normal car. It is not particularly to run and the inconvenience of having to charge the remains an issue in Europe.

By of the Twizy’s status as a quadricycle it not qualify for the government’s £5000 car subsidy. If it did I might be looking at the in a different light. As it is the Twizy a car that I like and something might be fun in certain circumstances but those circumstances are few and far between.
