This is a rare Twizy as this one does not have a battery lease, unlike all others in the UK. This means running costs are extremely low as there's no monthly battery rental and it doesn't cost if not used over the winter! It does however mean you own the battery pack with no warranty. That said, this vehicle has only done 965 miles since new, so is still like new.
The Renault Twizy is probably the most fun EV to drive, seats two adults and is a real eye catching vehicle and always generates a lot of interest. They make great promotional vehicles for companies and are often sign-written or wrapped. It's incredibly cheap vehicle to run too, at only around 50-60p to charge and free road tax and no London congestion charges. No special charging equipment required as it charges on a normal 3-pin mains socket.

Licence to drive
In the UK, you need a full driving license to drive the Twizy as it is classed as a 'heavy' quadricycle. An automatic only licence is okay or even a motorcycle licence if it was obtained before 2001 as it gives you the entitlement to category B1 quadricycles.
In other parts of Europe there is a lower powered Twizy, called 'Twizy 45' which is limited to a 28mph top speed, which can be driven by teenagers without a license or those who have lost their licence due to driving convictions, but these Twizy 45 models are not available in the UK.
