Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It is a good all-rounder with some amazing technology on board. I find the range sufficient and have done track days, skid pans and other events in it. Plus it can be very easily personalised.

Stick but I would swap for a Model Y, as it has a more practical hatchback….when it is available!
