I’ve recently spent some time researching the Twizy and have decided to buy one - I had a Sinclair C5 many years ago but had to sell it due to lack of space!
It’s main use will be driving to and from work during the summer. The 8 mile round trip consists of 30 and 40mph roads, mainly relatively flat although one steep hill (Bank Road in Matlock) or a slightly easier climb using another route.
I’ve had a look on Autotrader and the going rate seems to be in the region of £5k for an ~5 year old model but a brand new one is only £8k.
Our local Renault dealer actually had a 2013 model in for £5k so we had a good look at it today (photo below). It was the model and colour I’m looking for, with only 2k miles, but didn’t have doors, which I really would prefer to have.
I’ve left my details with them and they’ll be in touch if they find one suitable.
Still not sure whether to buy new or second hand but either way I better start making room in the garage!
