The 100kW full-electric drivetrain delivers 136hp and 260Nm of torque, a 0-62 mph time of 9.5-seconds in Sport mode and a top speed of 93 mph. Regenerative braking enables the driver to partially re-charge the 50kWh battery pack and increase range while on the move.
Three driving modes are available – Eco, Normal or Sport – activated by a mode selector on the centre console. Eco mode offers the highest levels of efficiency, Sport mode offers the highest levels of performance, while Normal mode balances the two.
