A CAR dealership in St Helens is now selling a futuristic fully-electric compact car.

Arnold Clark now stocks the Renault Twizy - a snazzy two-seater which runs solely on electric charge.

With zero tailpipe emissions, zero road tax and zero fuel, a top speed of 50mph and a range of around 60 miles, the Twizy is seen as a viable option for urban commuting.

It takes around three hours and 30 minutes to fully recharge or three hours for an 80 per cent recharge.
