The new Renault Twizy goes on sale next year and is priced at approximately £7000. First impressions of the Renault Twizy resemble something from a sci fi film as it doesn’t look much like a car.
When ordering your Renault Twizy you can chose between a gullwing-opening lower door, a single door bar or no doors at all, but you have to live with the consequences as on a beautiful spring morning no doors would be quite inviting but no so when we come to a soaking wet November evening.
The Renault Twizy weighs 881lb with batteries included. It is a fantastic city car and would suit a London lifestyle. It is extremely agile with a turning circle of just over 11ft and once the central driving position is mastered the Renault Twizy is capable of manoeuvring through the smallest gaps and parking just about anywhere. The Renault Twizy has a range of 62miles and it takes around three and half hours to recharge. Top speed is 50mph but reports say that the Renault Twizy is brisk and stable and maybe fun on a warm day but it is no substitute for a car.
