Below is a powertrain that pumps 150 hp of power and 320 nm torque with an improved electric motor. This is 38% and 26% higher power and torque than their predecessor. Without increasing its size, the new 40kWh battery pack receives more energy. This means that energy density is 67% higher than the 2010 model. The lithium-ion battery delivers an estimated 400 km range, even when the power plant packages more oomoph.
