Formerly a diesel-powered Geländewagen, it's now powered entirely by electricity.

Under the hood rests about 490 horsepower's worth of electric motors.

The motors are mated to a 80-kWh battery pack.

The result is an electric SUV that scoots to 62 mph in about 5.6 seconds.

Using fast charging, it can replenish about 80 percent of its charge in as little as 25 minutes.
