Many aspects of the Renault Twizy are less than satisfactory, like the range, price and unavoidable battery lease costs. However, if you can learn to live with those, driving a Twizy could be better than riding a scooter, which is what Renault is trying to provide some competition to with their smallest EV.
Moreover, it has rear-wheel drive, instant torque and suspension tuned by RenaultSport (which provides a harsh ride, but aids cornering), as well as two seats set in tandem, so that the car’s width doesn’t affect its parking ability.
