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.
Compact proportions, funky, futuristic exterior and optional scissor doors
Won’t manage long distances, only space for two and not suited to bad weather
