The Naimo draws its power by a permanent magnet synchronous motor that's capable of developing 107-horsepower and allowing the Naimo to reach a top speed of 93 mph. A twin-pack 27 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery gives the Naimo a driving range of 124 miles on a single charge. The battery can also be recharge to 80 percent capacity in just 25 minutes on a 50 kW recharging cycle, while a 3.3 kW normal cycle will take some five and a half hours.
