The electric version of this car demonstrates outstanding technical characteristics, combining modern innovations and high performance. Equipped with two electric motors from Huawei, the car guarantees a powerful and smooth ride. The front engine produces 160 kW, while the rear engine offers even more power at 230 kW.

This feature significantly reduces the time required to fully charge the battery, increasing convenience and flexibility of car use.

The hybrid version of the EREV is an advanced technological solution that combines efficiency and flexibility. The basis of this model is a 1.5-liter turbo engine with a power of 112 kW, which ensures confident and powerful performance. This engine is complemented by a pair of electric motors located on the front and rear axles. The front electric motor has a power of 165 kW, while the rear motor has a power of 112 kW. This power distribution allows the car to demonstrate excellent dynamic performance and handling, and also provides a choice between gasoline and electric drive, depending on driving conditions and driver preferences.
The battery system of this hybrid version includes a 40.055 kWh battery that allows the car to cover a distance of up to 175 km on a single charge in all-electric mode. This gives the driver considerable flexibility in the choice of operating mode, making the car suitable for both short city trips and longer journeys where the benefits of the hybrid system can be taken advantage of.
