There are a host of connected features including an e2o Remote™smartphone app that allows users to remotely control key functions, pre-heat/cool the car, start/stop charging, route plan and search for nearby charging stations. There is also a Remote Charging Scheduler™that allows users to schedule charging of their e2o at a time when electricity costs are at their cheapest rate. The Revive™remote emergency charging feature allows the driver up to 8 miles worth of range if the battery is depleted, and on-board telematics include sensors that remotely monitor vehicle health and send customer alerts. The Blaupunkt touchscreen infotainment centre in the top end trim has satellite navigation with ‘range remaining’ maps featuring charge point locations.

The e2o’s seats four adults and is equipped with dual SRS airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a Regenerative Braking System (RBS) that harnesses energy during braking to extend the car’s range while travelling.
