French Twizy EV dons odd new clothes, including Union Jack

Twizy is the best selling EVs in Europe. At the end of June, Renault has sold a total of 6,057 Twizy in Europe, including 1,583 in June alone when sales in Germany were almost double as in France! The Twizy peaked at 2,113 units in April – a figure that would have placed it at #130 in the European models ranking that month, well above the Nissan Leaf at #230 with 345 units. http://bestsellingcarsblog.com/2012/08/21/europe-has-renault-nailed-the-electric-car-with-the-twizy/ But it won't do well in the UK, Brits prefer to buy rather than lease, own rather than hire out for a day in some city day trip. UK only brought 52 EVs last month sales were down -71% on July 2011 don't know what the breakdown was of the twizzy leaf etc sales breakdown was for 52 UK EV sales in July.
