Re: Why a Twizy
I don't think I'll ever accept that adding weight to a vehicle and robbing interior space will be a 'good idea'.
The real issue these days is the CO2-based VED which because it is a prescribed amount of driving on a rolling road - it strongly favours hybrids/electric cars, just because so much of the test cycle is completed with zero (or next to) tailpipe emissions.
A dead battery is just dead weight, imo.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
