A More Comfortable Home: Driving Feels Like Resting at Home

Home is a harbor for anchoring, a paradise for dreams, and a source of rejuvenation. NETA L’s superior comfort is centered around these concepts.

Whether a vehicle is comfortable depends mostly on its seats. NETA L’s comfort is ensured with multi-directional electric adjustable seats for both driver and passenger.

For the driver’s seat, it offers 10-way adjustment, while the rear seats have heating (backrest + cushion) and two adjustable backrest angles. These features make NETA L the perfect choice for travelling, relaxing, and nap companion.

Its chassis suspension system combines a front aluminum alloy MacPherson strut and rear five-link independent suspension, tailored for family scenarios. This structure achieves a perfect balance between comfort and handling, making it ideal for Chinese family. With a braking distance of just 37 meters per 100 kilometers and a minimum turning radius of 5.37 meters, it excels in its class.

NETA L prioritizes comfort and convenience with features like front double-layer soundproof glass, 33 storage spaces, and the largest smartphone slot in its class: a 13.4cm extra-long door panel slot. The 16-liter passenger glove box easily stores backpacks and makeup kits. With a spacious 583L-1434L Loft double-layer trunk, it offers the largest 530L trunk in its class and can transform into a ‘big bedroom’ in seconds. Unique features like the trunk projector bracket interface add to the enjoyment of outdoor activities.

NETA L features convenient charging options throughout the vehicle, including 50W air-cooled wireless fast charging, dual 60W Type-C fast charging ports in the front and rear, a 12V power outlet in the trunk, and a 3.3kW V2L external power output function, ensuring your vehicle always ready for your on-the-go lifestyle.
