The model will initially be available in three variations, the most basic of which has an electric motor and a range of more than 400 kilometres and can accelerate to 96 km/h in 6.5 seconds.

The variant with two electric motors can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h in 4.5 seconds and has a range of more than 480 kilometres per charge.
