Space wise, I was expecting a little more in the front, not that I need it though at 5 foot 1 inches tall! The central unit is quite a beast for an electric vehicle, where most others have a big area of space in the footwell. That aside it was a pleasure to drive. I could adjust all aspects of the seat from the moment I got into the car, with ease.
I managed to drive the car on town roads, country lanes, and the motorway, and it glided along smoothly, handling sharp corners on the lanes well. The front massage seats were an absolute bonus, but a little hidden. The same can be said for the speaker volume – controlled by a finger slide across the buttons on the steering wheel. I would have much preferred a good old fashioned twisting dial. After pressing what I thought was a button quite a few times to get the volume up, it then went too high and I found myself travelling along the motorway at maximum volume without knowing how to turn it down. Soon resolved with a little help from a colleague.
There was plenty of pockets of space for women’s paraphernalia, with the only uncomfortable feeling coming from how quickly the battery charge seemed to deplete. Although, I would suggest this comes from all EV’s and is as a result of the ‘still developing’ charging infrastructure, and potential drive time for a battery top up. In comparison to fuel where petrol stations are plenty to the dozen.
