First impressions of Twizy
It is really exciting to get inside and drive
Twizy for the first time. It is exciting mostly because you don't know what to expect. This futuristic small vehicle doesn't look like any other and may be this is the reason why it is so attractive.
It is interesting to be pointed that the driver can choose which of the two doors to use to get in. Of course it doesn't matter, because the driver's seat is located in the middle.
Those ones who get in Twizy for the first time will may be confused of the fact that the electric vehicle doesn't have outside door handles. Doors can be opened only from the inside and guess what - they are scissor-opening doors, making it even easier to park.
