I have a new job in London and there is just nowhere nearby to park the Twizy. Yet it seems there are so many places throughout London to park motorbikes/mopeds/bicicyles, usually for free!
After thinking about this for a bit it seems it would probably work out cheaper to commute by moped than to pay for an Oyster card and leave my Twizy at home, losing me £45 per month on battery hire.
This is the problem with battery hire, when the Twizy isn’t being used so much, and even when you’ve bought the Twizy outright, you still have that monthly commitment which is hard to swallow if it’s just sitting there. At least with a conventional ICE car you only pay for what you use.
The only problem is, I would have to take my CBT just to ride a moped and then a practical test to ride anything over 50cc. What are other’s thoughts on this?
