The outlandishly styled, lithium-powered, electric lunar buggy has finally rolled itself into the UK. Designed for 'urban driving' and sporting ‘slides’ for doors, the Twizy boasts a top speed of 50mph and can deliver 17bhp. Thanks to the electrical engine under the hood, you can also dodge paying road tax or congestion charges.
