      The data on CO2 emissions, electricity consumption and electric range were determined according to the prescribed measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 as amended. The data do not refer to an individual vehicle and are not part of the offer, but serve solely for comparison purposes between different vehicle types. The values vary depending on the optional equipment selected.

      The ranges determined according to the standard WLTP cycle enable a comparison between manufacturers. They also include the measured range achieved through recuperation (energy recovery during braking). Individual driving style and behaviour, speed, acceleration behaviour, outside temperature, topography and the use of electric vehicles have an influence on the actual range and may reduce or even increase it under certain circumstances. The values were determined according to the prescribed EU measurement procedure. Depending on driving conditions, the value may deviate from the stated value.

      The charging time of the battery may vary depending on various conditions such as different ambient and battery temperatures, available power and other restrictions, as well as the use of the remote control function (e.g. remote controlled air conditioning, preheating of the vehicle, etc.). With a 7.4kW home wallbox you can charge from 10% to 80% SOC (State of Charge) in under 7.5 hours. Where a 22kW on-board charger is fitted, you can charge at this speed from 10% to 80% SOC in under 3 hours under optimal conditions.
