    A friend would like to buy a Renault Twizy. Anyone here has already driven one?

    Yes, at Geneva. I thought it was too slow.

    However it may have been set on the restricted power setting, which would have been silly.

    I actually saw a Renault Twizzy on the public roads here last week (Vlissingen, NL). Weird thing to see driving around!

    And as usual you get the silly and unnecessary remarks about the range and the charging... (that reminds of the TG stupid stunt)

    I saw several ones in the wild here in Switzerland. One of them on the highway.
    I saw also some in Paris. The Renault store at the Champs Elysees is full of little Twizies and the people just love them!

    That's why my search didn't find it... it's 'Twizy' not 'Twizzy'

    Indeed! Would the OP consider correcting the spelling in the thread title?

    Me too! What a great and well executed concept. Kudos to Renault. That said, you might like this video (pardon the German):
