The Renault Twizy is a unique, affordable and innovative car that will appeal to style, eco and value-conscious buyers. While it’s fun to drive and well built, the windowless doors and 50-mile range limit it to fair-weather city driving. Minimal equipment means alternatives like the VW up! are more comfortable and versatile for similar money.
The Twizy is the third and most eagerly awaited model to join Renault’s electric car line-up, after the Kangoo and Fluence. It’s 2.34 metres long by 1.34m wide, weighs 474kg and is designed as an urban commuter – and it looks like nothing else on the road.
All four wheels are mounted outside the body, while the doors have no frames, glass or handles; you reach inside to open them. They’re light and easily closed again from the driver’s seat.
