The Eco Travel Network ran a 3 month trial of their modified rural Twizy 'Toro' on the Isle of Eigg. The two main aims of the trial were:-

1. To see how well a modified Twizy works in locations similar to rural Wales where neither range nor high speed are important and renewable sources of electricity are readily available.

2. To identify the design priorities for a relatively cheap, ultra low energy vehicle which would work effectively in remote rural locations.

You can now read the trial report here.

The ETN has now moved Toro to Knoydart where the trial is continuing.
