If you've been slacking on your doctor-recommended dose of electronic beats and French weirdness, Renault has you covered. The company has turned out a new video for its Twizy pod car featuring a gaggle of youth prowling Parisian streets in the early hours of the morning. The fleet of bizarre-looking Twizy EVs descend on the Eiffel Tower for a quick plug-in just in time for the famous landmark to erupt into its hourly twinkling. The whole episode is set to some '80s wonderful tunes. It doesn't get much more French than that.

The Renault Twizy is a fully electric covered scooter available in two configurations. Buyers can opt for a nine-horsepower version with a top speed of 28 mph or a 20 hp version with a more respectable 47 mph top end. The company says charging the Twizy for three-and-a-half-hours will net users a range of around 60 miles. Not bad. Pricing for the EV starts at around $9,923 in the UK at current conversion rates. Check out the quick video for yourself. Be warned: there's a Panda in a suit.

      It's called the "Eiffel", a French version of the Edsel.

      I guess we can't get them here since we don't have an Eiffel Tower charging station and it would be really hard to drive up to the Statue of Liberty.

        HAHA best comment all day Thanks for the laugh. Maybe they can come here and we can plug them into Cinderella's Castle at Disney and put Mouse ears on top of the cars and call them a Mickey

      So you get one hour of driving pleasure for every three hours of charging. Doesn't sound too good to me.

      Why not? It is as good as most of the advertising and publicity stunts.
