^ The Twizy is actually electronically restrained for the first few meters, otherwise you would get wheelspin, these things have to be idiot proof:
But in real life it's quick enough to easily keep up with traffic, which is the important part. You probably could live with the bimble-along discomfiture of a 45km/h Citroen Ami in a 50km/h zone, but the last third of my daily commute is a rush-hour 60km/h main road that feeds the nearby Autobahn. - During my Twizy test drive last week I was able to even filter into a 80km/h road without problems. - That moment was basically what won me over to get one.
(Btw, this is all I'm doing since a few days, watching Twizy videos on Youtube).
I wholeheartedly approve of this thread. I sat in one a few years ago, and went like "this is cool but I have no use for it".
I do know a guy who uses it much like you do, but his commute is a lot further, he charges it daily and has done for several years, without any issue...
Altough I want this thing mainly for the daily commute, as soon as I get it on Friday, for sure it will be my transport to the AERO-EXPO in Friedrichshafen, a annual General Aviation exhibition of quite some magnitude. It's about a 30km (19mi) drive from my home to it, nicely doable both ways in one go in the Twizy, aided by the fact that about a third of the journey happends to be by parking it on the Lake Constanze car ferry.
If my impatient postings in this thread are cause for you to roll your eyes, my apologies. - My inner 10yo self is writing them.
I find it hilarious (and very wholesome) how the entirety of responses in here has basically been „awesome!!!!“. If I think back to a few years back, a bunch of FGers would’ve probably had a meltdown over this
