Renault Twizy

Picture of Renault Twizy on Briggate, Leeds.

Walking along Briggate in Leeds shopping district this afternoon I noticed a small track had been laid out. Renault the French car maker were giving free rides in their new electric car the Twizy.

The Twizy is described as an electric city car (legally clasiffied in Europe as a heavy quadricycle) and has a range of 60 miles with a 3 hour charge period.

I was tempted to have a ride but there were kids queuing and they would have far more fun from this than me. With no road tax I would think this would be quite a popular car for people who perhaps commute across a city.

The young woman driver and demonstrator I spoke to said she had great fun driving it around, I can believe that. As for charging it has a standard UK plug on the end of a coiled cable, so you could charge it up at the office.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
