Top Speed70 MPH (112 KPH)
Haven't done over 65 yet, but it's supposed to be able to do 70 mph.
AccelerationPretty damn good now with the Odysseys. I usually drive local at 35-50 mph, so I don't push it. It has no problem going faster.
Range40 Miles (64 Kilometers)
My best day is 79 miles w/intermitent charges.
I'm running a 28 battery pack. Have improved range with filling in grille, buying 12lb wheels and low RR tires.
