We hadn’t appreciated how widespread the Twizy electric cars had become until we saw them gliding along in this video. They look like a great idea to us – and the fact that you have to hire two for a family of four (whilst admittedly doubling the cost of hiring) actually makes sure that no one can hog the driving…

They’re sure to attract a few ‘looks’ – but it’s difficult to go anywhere these days without being scowled at by someone for being:

  • Sitting on a picnic rug

The Twizy can be hired from either Brockenhurst Station or Beaulieu Village.
