Moving on to the real driving impressions, some of the things that leap to the eye for this two-seater electric vehicle are  that is has a very good sprint from a standstill without fundamental to overcoming the obstacles and risks for citizens at intersections and is really quiet. Even the steering is very light without special efforts. One downside is the lack of rear view which forces the driver to park the car to lean.

Although small, the passenger feels comfortable enough in the course of the journey without causing any problems to the driver. There are also two glove compartments, one of them quite large behind the back of the passenger. In conclusion, it is a good buy for anyone driving in the city at an affordable price (from 6,990 euros).
