Europe: Introducing Renault’s Low Cost Electric Car: Batteries Are Extra

French car maker Renault has unveiled a low-cost electric car for British drivers.

Trouble is, the £6,690 ($10,876) car doesn’t come with a few basic essentials. Like a battery. Or doors.

Called Twizy, the miniature automobile carries a driver and one passenger for as much as 60 miles before it needs a recharge. Waterproof coats are not included.

Buying the Twizy alone won’t get you far, because the battery costs extra. You have to rent one of those, for an extra £40 ($65) per month.

In all seriousness, this vehicle barely qualifies as a car. It’s more like a quadbike with a roof. In fact, that’s what it’s legally classed as, and how insurance companies will treat it.
