This little electric SUV brings room for five people and their cargo while offering an impressive driving experience on the road.

2. The ID.Light feature gives you information about this electric SUV

Kelley Blue Book tells us the ID.Light feature is a light strip under the windshield that helps with several driving functions. This feature signals when the car is ready to drive, which direction you should turn based on the navigational data, and when the battery is charging. This useful feature tells you what you want to know with just a quick glance at the light strip.
