Review: e.GO Life

The new e.GO Life combines maximum driving experience with convenient usefulness in an unprecedented fashion. The car has been purpose-designed as a compact, lively electric car – proving that electric vehicles without trade-offs or surcharges are possible. It is an attractive, compact city car, especially useful as a second or third car for larger families or as a fleet vehicle.  The new e.GO Life – as agile as a sports car and as practical as a compact car!
