Renault Twizy – XCAR

To see our latest film before it's on YouTube: http://www.carfection.com Subscribe for more XCAR videos: http://bit.ly/U9XDKc A quadricycle is not a car. It's still got four wheels, in some cases a roof and can be propelled down the road under its own steam. But it is not a car. The Renault Twizy is a quadricycle, a really good one, and I love it. But I wonder whether society will give it a fair chance. Y'see, the little Twizy is an incredibly clever idea. It's cheap to buy (starting from £6,690 in the UK) and you needn't worry about batteries driving the price up because you lease them from Renault -- keeping the cost of the car down. It's small, so it's easy to park. It's light so, even though there aren't many batteries, you can go up to 60 miles on a single 3 ½ hour charge. There's even room for two people inside (just). Ok, its optional scissor doors may look cool but its lack of windows (now an aftermarket option in the UK, FYI) may make winter driving something of a challenge. So why don't I think it'll work? Simple: It's designed for urban living. The Twizy itself is a blast to drive. It steers well and its 17bhp motor is very responsive. Also, its 50mph top speed feels rather quick thanks to its lack of windows. Renault wants the Twizy to take over large urban population centres, to become a nice, easy alternative to the car. It's narrow, so you can fit two abreast on busy city roads, which means you can double to number of people using the roads. Ideal for a city like London, then. Except it isn't. Big cities, like London, are full of flats and unless you're a millionaire you'll be living in one. A small one at that. Those in houses can install a charge point in their garage/front garden/have a plug sticking through the letterbox and leave their Twizy on the drive to charge. The young funky types in flats don't have this luxury. That is, unless they have a REALLY LONG extension cable and a sadistic desire to trip up their neighbours. The government has already stated that there won't be a charge point on every corner, too, so flat-dwelling Twizyists will have to wait in line to charge their motors. The worst-case scenario here is lots of Twizy owners waiting in a...
