Twizy, how is it holding up to all the rain?

I was in my local Renault dealers today and whilst browsing the showroom, I spotted a Twizy in the corner. I'm not a fan, so was curious to get up close to one of these.

This isn't a post designed to poke fun, I was seriously impressed.

It looked very smart and I can see the appeal. The door swings up in a futuristic kind of style, the roof resembled a solar panel and there was even a seat in the back which I was surpirised to see.

However, the appeal soon waned as the door creaked and wobbled as I lowered it into place. Then there was a loud clonk as it shut with a firm push.

Then I noticed that there was no window and no apparent way to fit one. The large circular hole in the doorskin for the hinge didn't look waterproof at all.

It was raining heavily and I wondered what these Twizys were like in such weather. Waterproofs and a snorkle are not included I understand. What about the electrics? If Renault can't make dampproof wiring in a normal car, how does the 'open to the elements' Twizy hold up?
