They look amazing but I don't know how they justify a price point more than a decent family car. I imagine it's an economy of scale but they really need to get the price points down to £5k or less before they get serious consideration

If you look through the piccies on the linked thread you'll see a piccie of Andreas who was running Twike Uk at the time. Top bloke who helped keep all those mini-el's running.


As much as I love the idea of having a TWIKE, the cost is a real obstacle  :(

Ouch they do seem a bit costly. You could get all kinds of cars & toys for that amount. :-[ :-[ :-[
