I want to be a Twizy owner

Hi just joined the forum.

I have some points of interest about the Twizy. But would really like to get mine soon. 6-8 weeks wait for a standard pre-built model is just silly.

Welcome! I like the look of the Twizy - it has to be fun to drive - but I wouldn't want to use it in the rain!

Okay to explain

I had a small car for 9 years and did less than 18,000 miles. I travel to work 6 mile round trip on my Motorbike. So that's two lots of Tax, Insurance Mot's Servicing and fuel. I also have Solar panels on the house that provide more power on a sunny day than we use in a day. The other half has a family sized car we can use. So for getting to work or running my son around etc the two seater all electric car is ideal. Although it does not have a heater or side windows that is no different from the Motorbike I use all year round. So as I get older, I don't like getting as wet so this little thing ticks all the boxes. It will still be drier than the bike.

But still cannot bring myself to SORN the bike yet. May be if Renault ever get round to delivering it I might do so then.

I have now taken delivery of my Twizy and is it better than I thought it would be. The ride is softer than the Demo one and yet still corners well.

The Test drive didn't really show me how fast it is. Not top speed but acceleration and nippyness.

My wife thought it was an April fool left over (It was still April). But she now loves it.

My dealer said 50 commission for each sale I introduce. So don't laugh get the money.
