    Thats good. Renault-Nissan as a team offers various types of EV for different person with different requirement. The owners must be enjoying these cars when his daily commutes comes well within the EV’s range.
    Back home, E2O is a good EV for city dwellers, mostly for Tier 1 & 2 cities where the range is nearly enough for daily commute; ofcourse putting the price out of mind. One can use it for daily commute and could heir a taxi for occasional long trip.
    Wish Government’s effort to make EVs affordable meets success.
