The best part comes when we see the 25 HP generator between the engine and transmission, reducing the loss between electric and petrol drive modes. The car comes with a 2.0 L, turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine producing 320 HP, combined with 87 HP from the electric motors produces a total of 407 HP.
