Renault Twizy chosen for car sharing scheme in Lake District
The scheme is run in association with Co-wheels Car Club under the 'See More' sustainable travel programme delivered in partnership by Cumbria County Council, The Lake District National Park Authority and Cumbria Tourism.
The Renault Twizys are available to hire on an hourly, half day or full day basis from eight different locations in Keswick and Ullswater, and are intended to offer tourists the peace of mind that their visit will have the minimum impact on the environment’s outstanding beauty and its road network.
Richard Falconer, managing director, Co-wheels Car Club, said: “The Twizys were chosen as a light-hearted approach to help visitors think about zero emission driving. With their quirky looks and fun demeanour, the Renault Twizys are the perfect choice to attract conversation for visitors and residents alike. Cumbria now has a growing network of charge points, and with their ideal placement in campsites, the Twizys have a practical side too, allowing people who arrive in large cars or camper vans to have the freedom to explore the area in a small, silent vehicle.”
