The drainage hole in the seat for inclement weather - or going way too fast round corners?

Or I could stick with my diesel
Seriously £45/month I don't pay that for diesel. So for around the same price I have 150 BHP, four seats, heating, air-con and all the usual extras even windows, oh and a 5 star ncap. Run this past me again, why would I want one?
There's a comment you'll not often see around here...
"I wanted one, right upon til the moment I realised it doesnt have windows."

I love the idea and it's getting close but still too expensive given that you can get a Toyota Aygo a year old for that price and £45 would more than cover the petrol costs for the distance you are planning in a Twizzy plus you have a car with windows.
Maybe its more attractive on HP but where it really seems to be lacking is that it has most of the disadvantages of scooters - no windows, low speed and in this case low range combined with missing one of their big benefits of lots of available parking.
Battery tech is a big problem here - at £6k without the extra battery charges and upping the range a little the equation would probably start to change a lot.
