Handling Braking & Safety Details
The dynamics too fall short. The suspension remains unchanged, so theres not much difference in the ride and handling. The low-speed ride is absorbent enough but the eV2 still jiggles over road undulations. The suspension is quite clunky too, and at higher speeds, the car gets quite unsettled. The steering is non-linear and vague, especially around the straight-ahead position; this adds to the floaty feeling the eV2 has at speed.
