It’s obsolete before it hits the showroom floor.

Please say something like “Quoted fuel economy and range values are based on fairy stories (NEDC).”

I wouldn’t be too proud to be associated with these guys, it sucks. Many times more expensive then a Volt and less EV range. That big pumpkin should at least feature 186 EV miles instead of an 18.6 EV miles.

Frankly it super sucks. It’s time to let go and find suppliers somewhere else.
