I always thought that the EVs of that era looked like regular cars on stilts, because at that time they could only pack the (big) battery packs on the floor and therefore had to raise the car up to accommodate.
If I was in the US I’d still have voted her given the choice on display but her problems are similar to the LibDems in the UK in that she has the personality of a teacher you don’t particularly like.
