Rapper T-Pain Rides a Rented Renault Twizy in France

American Rapper T-Pain recently posted an image of him riding in his rented Renault Twizy in Nice, France. Cruising along with one of his friends, it seems they were actually having a lot of fun in that battery-powered two-seated electric vehicle.

When you are an American rapper visiting France of course you’ll drive a French car while sightseeing. Now the problem is, you’d think it’s a Bugatti or maybe some other type of supercar, considering rappers do like to show off. Well, it’s not the case of the 28-year old American singer-songwriter.

Faheem Rasheed Najm, aka T-Pain, posted a picture of him and his friend riding in Europe’s cheapest electric vehicle, the Renault Twizy. Considering we’re looking at a 140 cm wide vehicle with no side windows that weighs 475 kg, the Twizy was probably a bit of a squeeze for the two grown men.

For those thinking of the environment and wanting to save a wale or two, we’ll remind you this little vehicle, we think should rather be considered a scooter than a car, works with a battery the owner rents from Renault for £45 a month. With a 60 miles range, the battery takes around 3,5 hours to recharge.

If you want to know more about the fun to be had in a Twizy and what it's like to own, read our review. But considered yourself warned: if you’re planning to drive it in a humid type of environment, we suggest you buy those £500 side doors, you’ll definitely use them...
