The EPIQ is currently the top spec model and comes with a few additional features like the digital side mirrors, a  high-efficiency heat pump system and battery conditioning.

All models come with the 77.4 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery. The EPIQ also has All Wheel Drive, so that means additional motors at the rear.

Power is rated at  239 kilowatts and torque at 605 Newton Metres. Its reasonably quick with a 0-100 kilometre per hour tine of 5.1 seconds.

The EPIQ has a realistic range of between 500 and 450 kilometres. This obviously depends on how enthusiastic you are with exploring the performance.
