Both version RS and R will have a 120-kW induction motor and will be capable accelerate 0-60 in less then 3 seconds. RS has a 17-kWh battery pack and R a 12, 15 and 17 kWh option.

What? How did the cop know to wait for them there. Cuz it looked like they were waiting for them in particular. What was the reason for the pullover?

Looks like the rider was going along Skyline Hwy 35. On the weekends, there are speed traps to clamp down on speeding.
