General info

1.Is an electric car
?

An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.

2.Has rear-wheel drive
?

Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

3.Has fully independent suspension
?

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

4. longer basic warranty (km)
?

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag
?

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.
