  1. Hammer…. Kia hats got. And he also does it. What about the repairability. If the battery is easily accessible and upgrade capable? (Cell exchange). He can be equipped with an AHK? If so, which loads can be drawn?

    From which material is body and ground group (corrosion)? E cars can hold very long without high maintenance. If the body lasts that too. And there are always problems with premium ottos and diesel more often.
