Car Details

2012 Renault Twizy pure electric. 6,000 miles. Owned for two years, local journeys terrific, pence to run. It is what urban transport should be, fun/basic no heater/quick up to 35/40 mph, hard ride, top speed 50 mph. Cost new with doors and windows £7,700.

Good ones today 4 years old about £3,000-£4,000 and + a battery lease of around £45 p. month including vat.

Easy parking, rear wheel drive, disc brakes all round, 450kgs weight, two seater, you sit one behind the other, like pillion on a motor bike. Wonderful!
