Lots of poor dealers, build quality, water leaks, creaking steering, charge flap refuses to open if frozen, air vent reflections in mirrors, poor headlights, condensation build up, lack of interior lighting, ‘jiddery’ sport mode, exposed underpinnings, soft suspension, poor positioning of charge socket, poor speed sign recognition, speed warning indicator cannot be permanently turned off, poor infotainment system…


…no light in charge port, faux leather seats are vinyl and non-porous, sat nav system is very basic, telephone call volume way too low, 12 volt battery drain, front seat belts fixed, big drop in the load floor, load floor isn’t flat, no type 2 cable provided, no window tints, no battery percentage indicator, regenerative braking not very strong, average sound system, no climate control, no light in glove box, no phone App, no baggage hooks in the boot, no scheduled charging, sharp edged trim and expensive accessories.
