Renault Twizy: A combination of scooter and electric quad bike

The said vehicle resembles a motorbike with 1 plus 1 seat set up. Girls with short skirts shouldn’t be siting at its passenger seat! Twizy is shorter as compared to Smart and it is just as wide as Honda GoldWing. Compared to two models that Renault is making, it is high powered with a 17 hp engine. In just 6.5 seconds, it can go up to 50 kms which great for city driving. You will be surprised at how it builds up speed which can reach up to 82 kph. This is definitely a fantastic and fun thing to have. Any driver of the Twizy will have a smile on their face when they see the little uniqueness of the vehicle.
