Yes it is looking very interesting , but i think they are being a little optimistic with their range numbers also a little bit shy for what I personally am looking for

Really? long range battery option is pushing 300 miles (470 km) I can't really imagine wanting to drive farther than that in one day.
Funny how the more things change the more they stay the same. Back in 1985 I bought a new Jeep pickup truck. Salesman kept trying to get me to upgrade to the larger gas tank option :roll:

I should have been a little more clear.
I was referring to the smaller battery range .
39.2 kWh battery – 300 km (186 miles) range (WLTP)

I'm a little skeptical on how accurate the WLTP ratings are.
& also need to allow for any possible battery degradation over time.

I personally need for my maximum daily use -
125 miles (200 km) range

For the winter I would need to operate the heater - so I figure a minimum of
220 miles (350 km)

The larger battery price point would most likely be more thank I am willing to invest in.

For me, the center console buttress is a deal breaker. I doubt very much that I would fit comfortably.
