Very long delivery time, more than 4 months.
Had it for a week now and I love it!

Interesting vehicle. I've seen pictures of them before, but thought, until I just looked them up, that they were Chinese. In fact your car is a cousin to my Leaf! I'm sure others would like to hear more about ti from you, but find this site too hard to use.

Leftie, I got an e-mail regarding a message through "the contact form", but this site is crap and I was forbidden to access it.
Send me an e-mail instead: johnny at e-motor.se

Anyone with a Twizy, buy the OVMS.
Recently raised the top speed to 100km/h by sending a SMS to the car. Really amazing.

Wow, that is quite a feat, just with the OVMS and your cell phone? Meaning Twizy too has a diagnostic port! Even though it is just a quad.
That OVMS has really come a long way since its inception, which I think goes back to the Tesla Roadster?

Yeah, connects via the OBD connector.
Besides the app, which tells you where the "car" is located and charging status, temperatures etc. you can get lots and lots of info through SMS communication with the OVMS module.
F.ex. battery temperatures, cell module voltages, voltage/temperature deviations, used energy for your last trip etc. etc., it's really a great deal for only like USD130,00 totally.
And by sending "cfg"-commands via SMS you can change the settings of the Sevcon and alter top speed, motor power and regeneration through available macros or tweak it yourself.
