* Forecast range for the driving cycles as per the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) on the roller dynamometer (not a series version). The WLTP range for series vehicles can vary depending on the vehicle equipment. The actual range achieved under real conditions varies depending on the driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, ambient temperature, number of passengers/load, and terrain. However, depending on the usage profile, 80% of the drivers will be able to drive between 186 and 260 miles with the mid-sized battery variant (58 kWh, net) without having to recharge.
