    Extraordinary acceleration

    The performance software upgrade changes the pedal mapping, further improving motor response and delivering more acceleration right when it’s needed. It boosts power when you accelerate between 70 and 130 km/h, and reduces 0–100 km/h acceleration to just 4.4 seconds.

    Extra power

    The performance software upgrade amplifies the electrical power output of the battery, increasing torque and power output from the electric motors over the complete RPM register. It raises the motors’ combined certified power output from 300 kW (402 bhp) to 350 kW (469 bhp), and increases torque from 660 to 680 Nm (487 to 502 lb-ft).
