For him, this was his first-ever encounter with an electric car. What were his impressions? “Brilliant, wonderful. The silence inside the car, that’s a whole new level of driving for me. And the dynamics! And how spacious the car is inside,” he enthuses.
There is a large and growing network of public charging stations in Riga.
He says the new ENYAQ iV also impressed him from the outside – everywhere he drove it, the car’s dynamic looks turned heads. Māris Balodis also praises the interior design, its functionality and the fact that everything is in the right place.
The ENYAQ iV became Latvia's best-selling electric car in the first four months of this year.
“When you’ve spent a whole day behind the wheel of the ENYAQ iV, you really feel the difference when you get into a regular car. In an electric car, all you have to do is sit down, buckle up and move the selector lever to drive - and you’re away. No more unlocking the doors, turning the key or pushing a button and waiting for the engine to start. I’m a fan of this new mobility trend and the ENYAQ iV is the perfect car for day-to-day use, but it can also handle longer journeys with the family,” concludes Māris Balodis.
