If you're interested in possibly purchasing an electric smart car but don't want to make the investment until you've taken one out for a test drive, the Twizy Way car-sharing scheme is the perfect opportunity to see if these cars are for you.

A collection of 50 Renault Twizys (a two-seater electric car) will be available for residents of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines in France to take for a spin before they are released to the mass market.

Interested parties can either pre-book a car online or pick one up on the spot within the venture's 10.4 sq mile predetermined area. The cars can be parked anywhere within that location however, so bringing one's smartphone to locate the nearest Twizy will be extremely helpful. One can also rent out the car by scanning the QR code that has been affixed to the side of each vehicle. Stats for Smart Car Test Runs Trending: Older & Average
