In the same genre as other plug-in hybrids, the Lotus/Proton combines an electric motor a small range-extending combustion that replenishes the battery and additional power whenever

In this case, the electric is a rear-mounted 280-420 VDC unit provides 75kW peak and continuous power, driving the wheels through a single-speed with an integrated differential drive ratio: 4.214:1). torque is 240Nm.

Energy is in a floor-mounted 11.47kWh lithium-polymer pack with a circa-100kW capability. According to Proton, recharging can take place in hours using a standard 240-volt outlet.

The lightweight front-transverse-mounted internal combustion is a 1.2-litre six-valve three-cylinder can run on petrol, ethanol or methanol and a maximum 38kW at 3500rpm and at 2500rpm via an integrated electrical

The generator converts the mechanical to electrical energy for battery and range extension (providing power for the drive motors) as

Proton claims the Emas hatch can accelerate from in 14 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 170km/h. The range in full-electric mode is

Dimensions range from to 3555mm in length for the aerodynamic concepts, with overall listed at 1576mm and width These dimensions, and the wheelbase of place the cars around the size as the current Savvy.
