Most of you probably wouldn’t believe that this car can do 0-100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds when you can see it for the first time. Well, it can do that, and it can travel up to 265 miles or ~426,5 kilometers on a single battery charge.

The most powerful model pushes 416 hp (306 kW) and torque of 443 lbs-ft (601 Nm). It is equipped with a 85 kWh battery pack. These are pretty solid numbers for an all-electric 4 door sedan.

Less powerful models are available with different battery packs – 40 kWh and 60 kWh. 40 kWh version models pushes 235 hp (173 kW) and torque of 310 lbs-ft (420 Nm). 60 kWh version models pushes 302 hp (222 kW) and torque of 317 lbs-ft (430 Nm).

As you can see, even the least powerful model isn’t that weak, and its performances are very good.

The very first models will be the “signature” models, and these models will go on sale first. These models will be limited to only 1000 units.

40 kWh models are priced at around 52,400 USD ($). 60 kWh models are priced at 62,400 USD ($). 85 kWh models are priced at 72,400 USD ($). High performance 85 kWh models are priced at 87,400 USD ($).
