Twizy electric mobility pod

The Twizy sets out to carve a new niche in personal mobility. Producer Renault refers to it as a ‘UDO’ as in unidentified driving object. Essentially a quadricycle, the diminutive hub is 2.34m long and 1.24m wide, can sit two and is available with or without doors.

An all-electric engine powers the car, which on the more powerful model of the two accelerates to 28mph in six seconds and offers a top speed of just over 50 miles.

The battery promises a 50-mile range in eco-mode and it takes 3.5 hours to fully charge. A bright blue wire extension fits neatly into the car’s nose and works with any household plug.

We drove the two models around Ibiza and it proved to be a rather fun companion on the roads of Europe’s party island. Read the full report published in Wallpaper*.
