Go the extra mile. No plug-in required.

The Mild Hybrid reduces engine load for a smoother ride with reduced fuel consumption and lower tailpipe emissions.

A mild hybrid car - how does it work?

The mild hybrid powertrain, also known as MHEV, utilizes both a combustion engine and an electric motor. The MHEV is used to start the engine and brake or slow the car, thereby recovering brake energy that is stored in the 48V battery. This energy is then used to help boost the combustion engine when accelerating.
