This Is What It’s Like To Live With A Renault Twizy – Video

Getting Washed Up

It’s a rather comical review of the Renault Twizy and it includes taking the windowless car through a pressure wash (note: the interior of the Twizy is claimed to be waterproof).

Once behind the wheel of Twizy, the entire driving experience changes (for better or for worse), but there’s never a dull moment in this electric car.

“note: the interior of the Twizy is claimed to be waterproof”
Nupp, it’s not (completly), it’s using standard Components like the steering column stalks or the warning blink switch in the Instrument Panel which are not “Waterproof” and thus tend to behave strange after some time when contacts get a bit rusty etc…. However, Renault says within their Twizy User Manual ( http://www.e-guide.renault.com/913_7_ENG_X09/ressources/Download/NU913-7_ENG.pdf ) to not use High Pressure or Water Jets and not “higher” than the Driver’s seat. Staying away from the Instrument Panel should be more or less OK.

“Renault says … not use High Pressure or Water Jets and not “higher” than the Driver’s seat.”

But that’s not because it can damage the Twizy itself, but because you’ll wash whatever/whomever is on the other side of the vehicle 😀 😀 😀

If they were legal to go 50mph in the US, I’d consider getting one for fun.

So would I

ROTFL!

Well, I give the reviewer high points for entertainment and well-timed comedy.

The report on the real-world range, though… only 25-30 miles… is rather disturbing. Wikipedia states “the Twizy has a maximum range of 100 km (62 mi)”, which I presume is what the manufacturer claims. I’ve read that the European range ratings are inflated, but even by comparison, claiming double the real-world range seems excessive.

I admit to having been curious about what the real-world limitations were of driving one of these, so that was informative and mostly worth the time spent watching the video. I could have done without that pointless and overly long sequence at the end, where he drove thru a pedestrian-only bazaar, though.

“Cheaper than plastic surgery, in the long run…”

Yes.

It’s a toy.
