That little black BMW x-3 is a fairly small car at only 186 inches long.
But it’s a giant compared to the TWIZY by Renault.
This tiny electric car is only 92”,
about half as long as the little Beemer.
The ZE stands for “zero emission”.
It charges in about 3 1/2 hours from a standard household receptacle.
Or those charging stations, all over Milan.
Since its launch in 2009, Renault has sold about 20,000 units at about $10,000 each.
That’s not much.
But it’s impressive when you consider its range is only 40 miles.
And the only heat in winter is an electric blanket sold as an accessory that plugs into the car.
