The road to eco driving

Posted by David Orriell | 01/03/2013 | Category: Motors


Car manufacturers and governments alike have recognised the rising fuel prices and are racing to find solutions for a better environment. London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, has recently announced plans to ban motorists who don’t have a ‘green’ car from driving in central London in the day by the year 2020, and big car brands like Renault have been working hard to develop alternatives to help keep us on the road.

You may have tried hybrid cars before, chosen public transport over your car, or decided to cycle to town instead of drive. If being ‘green’ is high up on your agenda, then an electric car is the ideal vehicle for you. We recommend the Renault Twizy.

Compact, fun to drive, and sure to turn heads, the Twizy is the ideal and affordable city car for anyone who wants to increase their eco credentials.  It also seats two people so you can share the driving experience.

It has an integrated three metre cable for 3-pin domestic socket, a heated windscreen, lockable storage and grey 13" snowflake wheel trims. The 100% electric motor gives a silent driving sensation, and it takes just 3.5 hours to fully charge the Twizy.
