Why did you choose this car?
First, the size of the car, it’s a very good family car, the luggage space is fantastic, the range is good and the price is fantastic for what you get.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • Easy to drive very relaxing
  • Good range
  • The overall inside space is fantastic.


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • It’s got no app so can’t do a timed charge or pre-condition
  • On light in the back of the car for the passengers
  • Not much information in the car computer about the charging speed and battery SOH.


Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?


What are the standout tech features of the car?
It’s got all the standard stuff but nothing that is cutting edge. It’s pretty much a traditional car which is good in a way because it’s easy to convert from an ICE car.


Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.
It’s a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing when it comes to acceleration and speed. You can certainly embarrass a lot of the boy races when doing the traffic light drag race.
