Above all, the Velar P 400E creates with its 17 kWh battery up to 53 kilometers pure electric. The Navi helps. Would be nonsensical to accelerate before location sign or branch.

Extremely pleasing: At the Velar you still drive yourself. Although he can keep pace, track and distance, but otherwise leaves the feeling of freedom.

  1. A car that combines all bad properties. High loading edge, moderate cargo space (since coupe-shaped roof), poor overview (due to the 4m2 bonnet) High consumption, etc. In short, a car that is now used as a status symbol and is completely superfluous. And exactly such UNDINGERs will be charged with Mi plugin, so that the buyer (nature bondage of course, otherwise you would not have to go into the terrain) a good conscience. And in the city, the thing takes 10m2 place to move a single person.
