In Pure the car is powered solely by its electric as much as possible. The operational is up to 35 miles (charge depleting U.S certification driving cycle) zero tailpipe emissions in traffic. The range according to the certification driving cycle is 45 km.

Hybrid mode is the standard whenever the car is started. The gasoline and electric motor cooperate to maximum driving pleasure minimum environmental impact. to the European certification driving NEDC, CO2 emissions are 53 g/km l/100 km) — which into fuel economy of 100 mpg.

Using the U.S certification which include emissions the production of the electric energy, the fuel economy in continuous is 50 mpg. The car has a total operating of up to 600 miles (960 km).

In Power mode, the technology is to create maximum possible The gasoline engine with 280 hp and 380 Nm lb.-ft.) is combined with the motor with 70 hp and 200 Nm (148 The electric motor’s instant delivery contributes to the car’s from 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds (0-100 in 6.1 seconds).

Several levels of turbocharging up for flexibility that encompasses the range from high and torque variants to extremely derivatives. In order to cover all requirements, certain engines gain added performance via drive or other spearhead

The modular format is based on a of 500cc (30 cubic inches) per for optimum thermodynamics. It could be used to develop three-cylinder VEA offers several advantages

The of unique parts is reduced. promotes manufacturing efficiency, assurance and efficiency of new development

The new powertrains are considerably lighter present engines with performance.

Fuel economy is by up to 35 percent compared to engines similar performance.
