  1. How come such a big sedan priced so low. If it has the drive as smooth as the full size luxury sedan/saloon from European, Asian makes, then it could easily eat into the sales of those vehicles.

    And the PHEV version with 81 km NEDC which is still 60 km WLTP with the price of $31,700 is still great for most peoples daily commutes/weekend shopping.

    July was the 1st month that this car went on sale, we have to see how August is shaping up. If it really sells well, then it could influence the overall market greatly.
