Renault invited Rugby International Mauro Bergamasco - currently on duty with Italy in the Six Nations Championship - to prove the versatility of its new electric runabout - the Twizy. Despite its diminutive size, the Italy flanker was able to clamber inside with ease and take the tandem two-seater for a spin, showing off its agility and rapid acceleration to the assembled press. The Twizy will go on sale in the UK in April, priced from £6,950 plus a monthly battery hire charge of £45.
