    The EV features air intakes on the front bumper to keep the powertrain and batteries cool. On the sides lie the special wheels boasting a concave design with a G-Matrix pattern.

    Offering an unhindered view of the sky is a folding hardtop, which also incorporates a moon roof above the front passengers when the top is closed.
