thrilling performance is matched by its exemplary driving range. A full charge

charger. When charged via a 7.2 kW/32A outlet, it takes 6 hours 30 minutes for
0-100% charge and the same is achieved in 13 hours while using a standard 3.3
kW/16A domestic socket.

accent in sophisticated satin copper finish. It rides on high gloss alloy-wheels
featuring a diamond-cut high-contrast surface treatment.
