They will vary in the battery capacity (with up to 125-kW charging station support and 10-80% recharge time of 40 minutes), the number and capacity of electric motors, as well as the drivetrain. Three rear-wheel drive variants will have one engine on the rear axle. The other two flagship versions will be equipped with an AWD drivetrain and two motors.
