Bought the E-XL on Memorial day and this review is based off 3000 miles, and one 700 mile trip to Ontario, including 2 adults, 2 children, and a Great Dane.
I am a tough critic and feel that this car delivers on most of its promises.
Driving 13 hours straight revealed some pros/cons.
On the pro side, it was great to see MPG at 27.6 for our trip.
In town, our mileage is closer to 18 mpg.
Handling was precise at any speed, even with torrential rain.
Cargo was amazing - Imagine a full grown Great Dane standing up, along with a weeks supply of clothes, food, and fishing gear.
Plenty of room to spare.
On the con side, visibility was good, not great.
Console has too many bells & whistles.
