Electric vehicles open up a whole new world of potential luxury. Not only should a car be functional, but it should be a nice place to be – especially if you spend significant amounts of time there.
Ambient lighting is one such feature. It doesn’t contribute anything to the actual drivetrain, but it can help set the mood inside the cabin.

For more detailed information, read your owner’s manual. This contains everything you need to know. You should only operate your car after going through it thoroughly.
With that said, let’s get into it.
