The cut embarks indeed placed two electric motors on each rear wheel and developing 207 hp and 500 Nm each. Powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion Polymer of kWH 17 can be recharged on making conventional and offering a range of 50 km, these engines will be supported additionally by a heat engine.

This block 1.2 of 47 hp will be limited to the role of extension of autonomy and will therefore work to recharge the battery when needed. Thus the total autonomy of the Evora will be increased to 480 km with a total output of 414 hp.
