    It was supposed to be 19 miles electric but it’s 13 and it charges so slow. Disappointed. Seats are very firm. Sunglasses don’t fit in sunglasses holder. Only 35.5 months left on lease.

  2. Never Again says:

    The car is a hoax. 20 miles electric NOT – surprise it’s 13. Want to send it back. Charger was supposed to be compatible with my Tesla charger – surprise – NOT!

  3. Angela Watts says:

    How long is the charging cord? I’m trying to measure the distance from outlet to where I park my car before buying.

    I saw the same thing 20 miles range and I wish it was, Love the car but a bit diapointed

    I bought my 220v charger for my GLE550e at Costco on line when they were running a special for About $350. I changed my electric dryer plug to be compatible with the plug on the charger and mounted the new outlet back to back in my garage from my utility room. I don’t use the electric dryer outlet anyway. The car now charges in about 2 hrs instead of the 8+ on 110v.
