As Australian legislators continue to mull its place on public roads, Renault’s tiny Twizy quadricycle can now be driven by 14 year-olds in France.

The new option is the result of a European Union directive on the harmonisation of driving licences, adapted now to include access to light quadricycles for anybody holding a BSR scooter licence.

The new regulations - previously reserved for those 16 years and older - are specific to the entry-level ‘Twizy Life 45’, which limits the electric motor’s output to just 5kW, with a top speed of 45km/h.

By comparison, the regular Twizy EV delivers 13kW and an 80km/h top speed.

This means that neither model boasts blistering figures, but with four wheels, an airbag and double seatbelts packaged inside a protective passenger cell, the Twizy is likely to prove more appealing to many commuters than the two-wheeled scooter alternative.

As evidence of the Twizy’s appeal, Renault has now sold more than 15,000 units across Europe.
