Please give a reliable source for the difficulty in maintaing the matte grey finish.
Seems like if it requires it, the manufacturer would provide that info in the manual. Not sure why there would be some special way to maintain it. Should be just washing as normal. Some other members will have one soon and can provide their experience.
Totally agree. Paint is paint. Why would a manufacturer produce vehicle with a paint that would bring lots of criticism to the company. Totally ignorant just like the people pushing this hypothesis. Just trolls and disinformation I think.
For those who do not read Danish, Here is a translation. I am sure this will put off customers with matte gray EV6s.
