Renault Twizy (or, in its Japanese specification, Nissan New Mobility Concept) seems like being initially made for carsharing purpose – it is compact, all-electric, cheap and easy to drive. And this is exactly where Nissan put those cars into in Yokohama, Japan.
Now there are 14 stations in Yokohama with a total of 25 little EVs available for city rides. Service users should register online and have a Japanese driving license, a smartphone and a Japan-issued credit card.
Cars may be reserved 30 minutes in advance. Costs include basic charge of 200 JPY (1.80 USD) and additional 250 JPY (2.25 USD) per each 15 minutes of driving. Maximum daily charge is 3000 JPY (27 USD).
