I also saw the kangaroo ev at the port, I am very impressed with Europe's move to EVs
    You can always import one?

    Buy one in the Netherlands (for example), don't register it here and ship it.

    Sorry for the off-topic, but I'm curious.

    What's the Spanish translation of "small letter" and "fine print"? I'm curious how closely they match.

    In dutch we say something similair: "kleine lettertjes"

    So with "small letter" he meant the "fine print".

    Will test drive it tomorrow. I did drive the Fluence, the Kangoo, the Ampera, but never the Twizy!

    I saw a Twizzy today here in the Netherlands (Vlissingen) at a coast guard event.

    Funny thing to see in the wild

    FYI: You can check dutch license plates at: Voertuiggegevens

    Renault are lending me a Twizy for the day on Thursday to attend the Clean Tech Investment conference in London. Looking forward to it: much nicer than going back on the Tube. If there's one thing about London I don't miss it's Tube travel.

    Well, it was great! Much more fun, then I thought.

    It is tiny, but in a good sense. Has excellent roadholding and is a real car! Enough power and enough range!
    My girls loved it and even my wife! Driving a Twizy everybody smiles at you and cheers! Thumbs up everywhere.
    The only negativ thing is that the car seems not to have a park position and that the handbrake is awkward to use.

    It is the ideal city car!

    The Renault dealer, is a small dealer and he allready has sold three. He also has reserved a Zoe for himself. So the future is bright, the future is electric!

    Pardon if this has been asked and answered, but how is the safety in the Twizy?
