Its charge time should be 6 hours using a standard socket and 2 hours with a quick recharge terminal. A flash recharge would also make it possible for the vehicle to cover 25 kilometres.
Speed of the Blue Car
The engine has a power of 50 kilowatts and can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in 6.3 seconds. The speed of the vehicle would be electronically curbed at 130 km/h.
