I purchased a used 2016 EV Fortwo. I love this car for driving around town as it is quiet and easy to park. However, shortly after I bought it, I noticed a foul odor in the car. Like a vomit smell. I have tried to eliminate the odor. I have taken the car for complete interior detailing. Still the smell pervades. Any suggestions?

Possibly in your vent system. There are treatments you spray into outside fresh air intake vents that eliminate the smell. Do you notice it when you have the fan on?
Hi Oliver Thanks for responding. Am riding in the car now and turned on the fan. Don’t notice the smell. I usually smell it when it has been sitting and I first get into the car.

Cabin filter and an ozone generator. Run the AC on recirculate while running the ozone generator
Don't stay in the car if using an ozone generator. Does the same damage to your lungs as it does to microorganisms. It will also break down rubber and plastic, so you don't want to do it often or for too long.
