* What are electric cars?* How do they work?* What can you buy now?...
The Renault Twizy is much more affordable than any other electric vehicle out there it doesn't qualify for any Government grants, but still starts at less than 7000.
However, with just the two seats one behind the other it is stretching it a bit to call it a car, especially when you consider that the options list includes things that you would normally expect to be included doors and plastic, zip-in windows for example.
The limited range, low top speed and very firm ride mean that it is not a vehicle you are likely to want to take far out of the city, but it is an entertaining and eye-catching way to get around on electric power.
