Any bargains out there for a used Twizy or C-Zero?

Postby noahs-dad » Fri Aug 11, 2017 12:55 pm

I am looking at cheapo used budget cars right now. Does anyone know of anything available, or happened to have spotted anything recently? I could travel to North England or as far as lower Highlands to collect, if there is something good out there.

I will do about 45 miles a day for purposes of a commute, approx. 10,000ish miles a year. My budget is £3000 - £5000 to buy outright.

I'd consider a Renault Twizy for £3000 as long as it had doors with windows. Is probably not the most practical choice but have always craved for a Twizy, can at least now T2 charge it every day at a P&R (with an adaptor). Wouldn't pay more than about £3000 though as have to factor in a couple of years of the Renault battery shenanigans.

A Citroen C-Zero I know little about to be honest, is a fairly rare car to see too. It can at least rapid charge, more space, and a bit more range than a Twizy. Seems to have a decent reputation, any tips for any C-Zero's in my budget?

Not so keen on a 1st Gen Leaf, as I don't like the battery degradation and that so many of them seem to have spent a lot of time idle over the years. Not keen on a 2014 or 2015 Zoe either as that is £6000+ and battery nonsense. I think a Twizy would be easier to sell on in future that an ever increasingly outdated and less appealing old Leaf or Zoe.

I am probably keenest on a Citroen C-Zero if there is something that out there that meets my budget.

Any other suggestions/tips/bargain spots on used cars welcome!
