RENAULT TWIZY

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: from £6,995 The Twizy (above) is a bit of an odd­ball in the EV world.

It isn’t ex­actly a car in the tra­di­tional sense – more of an elab­o­rate mo­bil­ity scooter, or to give it its of­fi­cial ti­tle a ‘quadri­cy­cle’.

With dinky pro­por­tions and an im­pres­sive turn­ing cir­cle, the Twizy is a car that has been de­signed with city driv­ing in mind.

That’s not to say you couldn’t use it on a daily com­mute, as Renault claims the com­pact EV can travel as far as 56 miles in the real world.

Just be mind­ful of the lowly top speed and the lack of win­dows.

PROS:

Com­pact pro­por­tions, funky, futuristic ex­te­rior and op­tional scis­sor doors

CONS:

Won’t man­age long dis­tances, only space for two and not suited to bad weather

NEED TO KNOW:
