A friend of mine happened to mention that in the New Forest they now have a scheme set up for tourists to hire the electric Twizys (rather like the scheme in the Brecon Beacons) – with a network of charging points as well.

Apparently you can “Explore the wonderful scenery of the New Forest by hiring one of Renault’s new electric two-seater Twizy cars! Not only is this a funky and fun way of exploring this unique destination, but you will also ensure your holiday is as environmentally-friendly as possible.”
