It has a lithium-ion polymer battery capable of 64.8 kWh and a power output of 182 kW. Both models have a maximum speed of 162 km/h.


Design Elements

Heated front seats are standard for both models, but only the Ultimate has ventilated front seats. Standard features for this lineup include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-level cargo floor, and a rear window defroster with a timer. The Ultimate is equipped with ambient lighting with 64 colours to choose from and a head-up display.


Both models have roof rails and body-colour body cladding, but the Ultimate can opt for a two-tone body colour. Full LED-line daytime running lights and turn signals inside the headlights and taillights are also exclusive to the flagship model.
