' This newest addition to the Volvo electric line-up has all the benefits of an SUV but with a lower and sleeker design.'

One of the benefits of an SUV which is most appealing to us oldies is being able to get in and our comfortably because of their high bodies.

The Volvo PR people are talking nonsense, not everyone wants low, sleek and difficult to access.


Too expensive


Instead of writing about Fjord Blue Carpet and Unique 20" wheels, why not supply some useful data such as battery capacity, range, chargineg rates, etc.


Agree! A properly designed EV should be far less than ICEVs because of the reduced mechanical complication and easier build cycle. This will happen when the newness and resistance to change wears down.
