The EPA revealed a rating of the hybrid variant, which was 239 miles using the EV forms electric range in Arlington, TX.

The new models come with a few upgrades for the hybrid and plug-in models. The hybrid includes new headlights, LED running lights arranged in a double-chevron, and the grille has a diamond pattern. The car comes in with a wheel size of 16 or 18 inches.
