Two drive systems
Depending on the driver-selected drive mode and available electric energy, the two drive systems can be used either individually or in parallel.
The electric motor is supplied its energy from a hybrid battery fitted in the tunnel console. The hybrid battery can be charged in a wall socket, or in a special charging station. The internal combustion engine can also charge the hybrid battery with a special high-voltage generator.
Both the internal combustion engine and electric motor can generate motive force directly to the wheels. An advanced control system combines the properties of both drive systems in order to provide optimum driving economy.
