If I were to go ahead with a purchase, I have configured my ideal Twizy using the Renault website with the options I can see - Technic in Diamond Black with clear sky roof, doors, anti-lift alarm (couldn’t see any option for mud flaps?) total £8,310, plus battery hire.
It has been well known for some time that we in the UK seem to get a raw deal when it comes to new car pricing. Has anyone noticed how much more expensive the Twizy is to purchase in the UK? I can only imagine the difference between the EU/UK models would be - headlamp beam pattern, the electrical plug type/voltage and display configured for mph or km/h.
Urban 7690,00 € (£6,158.37) -£531.63
Color 7990,00 € (£6,398.62) -£551.38
Technic 8490,00 € (£6,799.03) -£600.97
I understand that the UK has a slightly higher tax rate of 20% vs. France of 19.6%, but surely there cannot be that much of a difference?
