It's equipped with special 15 inch 'Tezzle' aerodynamic alloy wheels, which not only add a sporty touch but, more importantly, help to conserve energy.
On the inside the blue detailing continues with stitching on the leather trimmed steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. which not only looks good, provides a better grip for added safety.

The Charging cable connects to a standard main socket either in your house or at a public charging station. This takes approximately six to ten hours to fully charge the battery. Alternatively you can install a wall box at home. This reduces the charging time to less than six hours. The fastest option is to charge with a direct current from a public charging station using the Combined Charging System, taking only 30 minutes to charge 80% of the battery.
