In case you never heard of the Twizy before, it’s a line of compact cars from Renault that are so slow, they don’t register as cars in certain countries. Oh right, they’re really small too. Small to the point of having space for just two passengers. If you wish to ride the wave of the future, however, then go ahead and make reservations for the Twizy of your choice. There are three variants to choose from.
The Twizy line is Renault’s answer to the emerging trend of compact cars, which badly need to be rethinked cos man, compact cars are ugly. Sure, sure, a compact car future is what lies ahead in humanity’s quest for a more energy conscious future, but the compact car? Damn ugly. Compact cars are great in terms of efficiency but as the future of private transport they need more imagination.
What’s worse is the li-ion batteries for these Twizy’s are for rent and reservationists have to pay monthly for their use. Ugh.
Anyway, for the enthusiastic, the Twizy’s available for reservation include the 45 km/h Twizy 45 for EUR6,990; the Twizy Urban for EUR7,690; and the Twizy Technic for EUR8,490. Batter lease prices vary a little among the cars.
