ive owned my twizy for about 4 months now and its the most fun ive ever had in a car, ive spent thousands and thouands on cars my last 1s being mercedes amg and audi tts but i truly love this to bits, nippy fun to drive amazing looks and my fuel bill has gone from £400 a month to 84p! not to mention no engine servicing no tax, any traditional car i drive now just seems old fashioned much like a steam engine, pistons valves, lets move forward. ive driven a few electric cars now including the nissan leaf, admittedly hardly any electric car looks amazing at the min but the drive, performance and comfort is to die for, my merc felt like a bag of nails after i drove the leaf, the twizy is more back to basics but serious fun, you can buy proper lexan windows for it now if you shop around and if your fairly intelligent fit an electric heater and another battery to power this, mines now dry and cosy for the winter, just plug it in every night when i get in and you will be good for 60 odd miles once your batteries are bedded in, dont for get all the road tests are with twizys that have had little use, as with any electric vehicle they get quicker and last longer once the batteries have been cycled many times
