Explore the Lakes in a funky electric 'Twizy'

Ullswater, Cumbria

The head-turning electric Renault ‘Twizys’ are now available for anyone to hire.

Ready to hire from a variety of visitor attractions and accommodation providers, as part of a partnership between the ‘See More’ sustainable travel programme and the national car sharing company Co-wheels Car Club.  With no engines, exhausts or fuel systems, they can be driven at the push of a button and will allow visitors who arrive either without a car or in larger vehicles to explore the nooks and crannies of the Lake District in a silent, eco-friendly way, hearing the sounds of the lovely surroundings as you do not get with normal car noises.

To make the funky two-seater vehicles distinctively Cumbrian, each has been branded with its own distinctive sheep personality and named in traditional dialect (a mix of Westmorland and Cumberland numbers).
