  1. Only VW is offering value for money product in the list with the range and quality materials the icing on the cake is it's primarily rear wheel drive and also available as AWD maybe as some experts pointed out in their reviews that VW wants to wash the blot of Diesel gate so they are offering the ID 3 at such an attractive and somewhat unbelievable unbeatable price point alas blessing in disguise for us, go VW go, literally.

  2. The affordable electric car market segment seems to be the most underrepresented, which seems unfair considering the consumer demand for this type of vehicles. Today we are looking at the cheapest EV models to decide whether the manufacturers have finally heard us and started producing vehicles that are actually affordable. Which ones did you like the most?
