She would actually be the ideal market, well, whoever is supporting her. First car for students etc, where you want to be able to get to/from lectures, but don't want to have to pay the excess rent of living within walking distance of campus.

But then think of the huge power bill you'd get when you have to charge the thing every night. Having seen some students' posts on here about how tight money is, I would imagine they would try to save everywhere they can. Plus riding a bike would keep you in shape.

It draws as much power as a vacuum cleaner

And being that most people are ignorant to the fact that a vacuum cleaner draws about the same amount of power as 4 houses with every single light on in the whole house, you can pretend it isn't just gobbling fossil fuels like there's no tomorrow, not really all that different in the end to a petrol/diesel/gas car of the same size.

Really though, would you want to drive that car around brisbane? It looks like a vagina on wheels.

I'd get one as a 2nd run about

but what I could really see these been good at is the grey nomad market, having a roof would beat the old little scooter that some have mounted to their motorhomes,

so, looks like some twizy owners might be riding a bike at least once over the nest few weeks,

Yeah its a great idea but poorly implemented. I mean they charge extra for the doors and windows I mean wtf?

Rebuttle time:
I would rather drive this than a scooter or commuter motorbike because I dont feel safe on a bike.

The cost of electrcity is nothing especially if you got solar panels (I've been in credit for the last 2 years).

The cost of leccy power versus fuel is irrelevant because you have to pay a monthly battery rental.

ahh, the renault, better place monthly battery deal

my understanding is that they (better place) feel that this is about what people are spending on fuel per month so it is a cost that is easy to come to terms with, they cover (and make profit in a few years) their cost, and people have the joy of one day pulling into a battery swap joint, and then driving out

it (better place) does cover more things like replacement batterys, and spreading of the costs, but how long will a car last?

A long time.

The electric motor is very low maintenance only one moving part. There is no gearbox either.

More likely to have electronic faults or battery failure.

i know you are the dude for flying the flag for electric vehicles slaps... but keep it real yo! you can't just state that all electric motors will last a long time or that they only have one moving part. an electric motor large enough to drive a car is going to have bearings on it's spindle so that's a bunch of moving parts. or saying stuff like "there is no gearbox"... not a tradition gearbox but the motor shaft doesn't drive directly to the wheel hub... there has to be moving parts in between to allow for suspension & the like. whether this particular motor is reliable long term.. only time (& use) will tell.

if renault sell a lot of these cars that chick in pink should get a commission :)

Battery rental?? Seriously wtf .... way to kill off any real interest by the average Joe.

My only interest in future tech involving power usage and power generation is the ability to remove any dependence I have on companies to provide it. I look forward to a time when I can effectively generate and utilise my own power.

This thread has clearly gone off the rails because it's turned to discussion about the car and not the hot Danish chick.

It's keeping the girl in the video in very good shape.

Sorry dude didn't think I was writing an essay.

I'll rephrase that the electric drivetrain and transmission has fewer parts than a conventional ICE engine. MOst EV articles over the years have stated that the Syncro Magnet Electric motors are good for something like a million clicks... but even I dont believe that. But lets just agree that a dedictaed EV motor will last alot longer than a conventional ICE engine.

How long is a piece of string?
