As i am trying to source a Renault Twizy Loan to roam around london promoting this magical commuter alternative to passer-by’s, I am yet to actualy, well, source one.
I dont know if i am underestimating the sales, (doubt that) or they are simply all over the place and people are holding onto-them, (again, doubt so) or finally, if there is supply issue. (hmm, lets look into that)
So, i hopped onto https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/ website as recommended by my fellow twitter-ers out there.
And it really turns out that, there genuienly not, that, many of Renault Twizy’s around. Mostly STOCK from 2012.
So what happened there? Lets look into details:
Renault Twizy Urban And Technic Model registrations for each year since release until now
So, I suppose the question to ask:
What happened to Twizy Lifestyle that Renault is aims to promote
Registrations spiked in the release year, as a result of good promotions/preorder/leases, and then it slows down to a trickle.
Are Twizy’s right to fullfill that aimed “lifestyle”, as renault sees it, or does it need to be adjusted.
From a different angle, at 7k-8k for a brand new spanking Twizy, – are they simply too expensive… for a quad bike, considering the Batteries are “not included”. They start from £40 odd a month/for 4,500miles/year range.
I personally think that they are great for urban areas (as long as they are not abused – having unsecured cabin access hinders that)
But i also believe they are not marketed enough, well, and may have a wrong price tag.
Afterall, I am a firm believer of “economies of scale” and having a few for expensive price tag sold is not as good as have quite a few sold for a cheaper price tag. (never mind additional battery lease contracts arranged)
I am thinking out loud. Let me know your thoughts.
