The NETA V also features a reverse camera and sensors for added safety and convenience, along with a built-in N95 A/C filter to ensure clean and fresh air inside the cabin.

The vehicle features a drop-down notification system for quick access to essential functions. The bottom row control panel also offers shortcuts to adjust the A/C settings, headlights, fog lights, and energy recovery intensity (light, medium, or high modes). A dedicated home button provides easy access to frequently used functions, adding convenience and minimising driver distractions.

Sleek, modern exterior

The car’s sleek design, accentuated by LED front and rear lights, including daytime running lights, gives it a distinctive and futuristic appearance. 

The NETA V’s fastback crossover silhouette and 16-inch blacked rims contribute to its sporty and dynamic aesthetic, appealing to modern drivers.

Practicality is a priority for the NETA V. It offers a spacious 335-litre boot, which can be expanded to a generous 552 litres by folding the rear seats.

Keyless entry, coupled with a unique fidget spinner key, provides convenient access to the vehicle. The flat-bottom steering wheel also adds a sporty touch.

Connectivity and storage options in the NETA V go the extra mile. Equipped with three USB hubs, including one for a dashcam, the vehicle enables easy device charging and data transfer. A touch capacitive dome light enhances the interior ambiance. Meanwhile, deep storage spaces, a phone holder in the centre console, and an additional compartment below offer practical storage solutions.

For families, the ISOFIX rear seat provides a secure and reliable anchoring system for child seats.

The vehicle offers different drive modes: normal and athletic. Athletic mode boosts the power output from 70kW to 95kW.

The instrumental cluster of the NETA V provides essential information at a glance, including battery percentage and range, power rate indicators, cruise control settings, real-time power consumption, and tyre pressure monitoring system indicators. Cruise control adjustments can be made through the steering wheel interface, making long journeys more comfortable and efficient.

The charging indicator light displays different flashing patterns to indicate the battery’s charge level.

The NETA V can be fully charged in around eight hours with a 7kW AC home charge, while a 30% to 80% DC fast charge takes just 30 minutes. The vehicle offers a range of 384km to 400km on a full charge, depending on driving style and conditions.
