The two doors slide electrically. Top speed is more than 100 kmh and the range is more than 90km on a fully charged battery, which ought to give some indication of what the coming IQ electric should do.

It can be charged from any household outlet, charging in 180 minutes at 100 volts and 100 minutes at 200 volts. It can operate with, or without the an external charge. With the charge, it can cruise 20 kilometers on full electric.
