Twizy Travel: 2 people, 2 suitcase, 1 bag, 1 twizy #electricCar #ev ride #commute #london

Who said you can go for a quick weekender in a #twizy…

Ok, so we had to get from A to B really, but with 45odd mile range I’d get on my Renault twizy, you can see the convenience,(or not and I won’t blame you) of the ride, vs public transport lugging all this and change several times along the way. And Before you ask: No, I don’t have another car at the moment. So twizy or train&tube&bus.

Cost of this travel option: £1 in electricity.

Cost of would be alternative public travel for two people would be £20 (+ time inconvenience)

Uber equivalent would be £50

—- so, can #twizy holiday be done?

 Yes —-

Would I do it again? 

Not really – my i3 delivery is nearly upon us. 🙂

Taking my #twizy #electricCar for a quick healthCheck at Renault West London

May 28th, 2015 § Comments Off on Taking my #twizy #electricCar for a quick healthCheck at Renault West London § permalink

While my funky bluish ride is behaving like it should, and there is not cause to be much alarmed, i did come across some small time to outright “wtf” issues, which i hope a nice health check for my piece of mind can help resolve.

First. The Doors
Twizy Door not rising up as easy as it should. by evmeerkat.comTwizy Door not rising up as easy as it should. by evmeerkat.com
They work in the sense that they open and close, UP/DOWN action on those, but mechanism and indeed the Process is not as, how you’d say REFINED as you’d hoped for. In a sense, there is much physical exertion one has to go through to take these doors UP/OPEN. Tad annoying? i’d say so.

There is a small nuance to door to lock latch alignment

Boot Locker which does not lock. Something to do with latches... hmm. to fix. twizy ev by www.evmeerkat.com

Boot Locker which does not lock. hmm. to fix. twizy ev by www.evmeerkat.com

And finally the most importantly, the Boot Locker.

Its a weird thing, which is either broken or… something along those lines.
Now, lets see how this plays out in the full video.

Wireless #Twizy #Taqsi Sound Speaker Upgrade solution &works from my laptop’s USB. Does Say 6W …x2

So everything is now delivered.

#taqsi #twizy sound system kit by #evmeerkat

#taqsi #twizy sound system kit with bits and pieces for quick DYI job – no soldering or hacking necessary. by #evmeerkat

 

Unpacked, plugged it all in for the dry-run by my laptop and voila. works like a charm.
#TAQSI Research pays dividends.
I did waste some that near £3, for hopeful 3.5mm splitter which came faulty and actually unnecessary

(i also suspect playback from bluetooth is one-channel only)

Nevertheless. Sound comes out quite good. Will try capture playback on video, which are notoriously bad for any audio sound benchmarking anyway. what can i say, every lil helps i suppose.
Have a look at the pretty snaps – made it myself and playback is quite neat too.
It does say that its a 6W for each of these pink-shiny Music Angels
