Renault Twizy review - Is it tomorrow already?
It's not the future of urban commuting, it's the present! We drive the quirky Renault Twizy

The reason why the Twizy is a treat to drive is not because of its sound-barrier breaking performance, but because of its handling. With a low centre of gravity and (ha ha ha, wait for this) the corners placed at the four wheels, it is fun to throw around. And if you are particularly adventurous, it can even get its tail out when the rubber loses its fighting spirit. No kidding. Ah, but the consequence of having all that weight lower down is that the Twizy’s ride is a bit too firm. Driving it on Mumbai’s paver blocks (which we use for our roads as we don’t have pavements) will get you a complimentary bottom massage.

The Twizy’s battery takes about three-odd hours for a complete charge and that usually is what makes people think before buying an electric vehicle. But I guess people will work around it and make it a practical enough runabout for urban life. Yes, this is the future and it is already here. But it looks so sci-fi that you need to buy clothes  from starwarsfashion.co.jp or startrekandyou.fr to be seen in the Twizy. Especially the one without the doors.
