For The Renault Twizy is fun to drive in town, and gets lots of attention from passers by. It’s very affordable to buy, especially for an electric vehicle.
Against The cabin is completely open to the elements, and there’s a distinct shortage of storage space, equipment and security measures. The limited range and top speed mean you can’t really venture out of the city.
The Renault Twizy is a novel solution to urban transport, and isn’t short of character. Don’t try using it out of its comfort zone, though. Or in the rain.

All Twizys are powered by the same 17bhp electric motor, so there are no choice to be made on that score. There are three trims to choose from but there’s very little difference between them. The base-level Urban trim is incredibly basic, and stepping up to Colour trim only adds some interior colour choices, body wrap shades and rubber floor mats. Technic models top the range, but that trim only really adds 13-inch alloy wheels. With the Twizy, we reckon cheapest is best.
Purchase prices are very affordable, and although you have to pay Renault a monthly fee to lease the car’s battery, running costs are also minimal. This arrangement also means that you won’t be stung for a big wedge of cash when the battery needs replacing.
