Towcar summary

What's good?

Nice to drive. Very comfortable. Tows its maximum 1500 kilos ok.

What's bad?

Electric range, very limited, listed as 33 miles per charge but in the real world more like 20 miles. A fairly thirsty petrol engine, but sweet and reasonably powerful.

Would you recommend it?


Towing performance ***

How well does it tow?

Tows well.

Solo performance ***

What's it like without the caravan?

Nice to drive solo. Reasonably powerful. The transmission (electric motors) make it a seamless drive.

Reliability *****

Anything to look out for?

Condition of the battery pack, expensive to replace. No known issues.

Practicality ***

Is it easy to live with?

Yes and no. Controls and space all fine. Electric side could be better, more miles per charge required.

Buying experience *****

Did you buy it new or used?


Where did you buy it?

Franchised dealer
