Its users have many positive comments like it is easy to drive; it requires less parking space; it requires very little space to open its door; it protects the rider from pollution while driving; and many more. Negative remarks were that it has very little space inside, is not very comfortable for two people, has no holder space, no pocket space, and for some people, it has very little range and top speed. Due to range and speed, it seems a bit costly.
