This is the first of the new generation of fully electric vehicles on the market. With 240+ miles of range it has 2-3x the range of any other electric car on the market in its price range, rivaled only by the much more expensive Tesla model 3. Say goodbye to range anxiety!
While it may not have the futuristic styling of the model 3, it’s got a unique and pleasant interior in its own right. As a 5-door hatchback it is convenient to get around town with plenty of seating and cargo space.
It charges from empty in about 9 hours on a level 2 charger, but with regular use and charging it doesn't need more than a few hours at a time every few days.
I have a level 2 charger you can use at my apartment, and there are plenty of other free and cheap level 2 charging stations all around LA. Use an app like 'plugshare' to find them. It also comes with a regular outlet charger but it takes a few times as long to charge. If you have somewhere to plug it in overnight that's usually enough.
