These provide a range of up to 830 km and come in both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive options. The top-spec variant boasts a peak power output of 663.7 bhp and a maximum torque of 85.4 kgm, accelerating from 0 to 100 kph in just 2.78 seconds and achieving a top speed of 265 kph.

The exterior design features a sleek, low-flow look, reminiscent of the Porsche Taycan.
