Beyond the alien shape, the El-Born sports abounding administration cues apparent on added Bench products
Named afterwards one of the best iconic neighborhoods of Barcelona, the El-Born is about a bunched auto that looks aloof as big as the accustomed Leon. However, while the Leon has a adventurous stance, the El-Born looks a bit bloated, agnate to a baby minivan. It’s a bit agnate to the Chevrolet Bolt and its European counterpart, the Opel Ampera-E.
Beyond the alien shape, the El-Born sports abounding administration cues apparent on added Bench products. Both the advanced bonanza and the headlamps are familiar, as is the advanced hood.
