*Minimum charging time at an 'ultra fast' public Direct Current (DC) charging station, charging at a peak rate of 170kW from 10% to 80% battery capacity. Charging times can vary depending on many factors including but not limited to ambient conditions, auxiliary consumables (e.g. seat heating and air-conditioning) and capabilities of charging infrastructure capacity and/or supply.

^Combined figure based on ADR 81/02 (pure electric range). Figure is derived from laboratory testing. Factors including but not limited to driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental influences, vehicle condition, use of ancillary features (eg air conditioning) and accessories (including wheel size) fitted, will in practice in the real world lead to figures which generally differ from those advertised. Advertised figures are meant for comparison amongst vehicles only.
