The top model is offered with two electric motors with a total capacity of 600 hp, each of which provides rotation of its own pair of wheels, and as an option one of the motors can be turned off. Power for electric motors is provided by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 70 kWh.

In addition, the car has an independent adaptive suspension of all wheels, a braking energy recovery system, fast charging and is able to overcome up to 305 km.
