True, we are not looking at the product they need to clean up their accounts, but the right one to give their image a luster. This same play is the one carried out by his «countrywoman» Lotus, with the Evija, and it has been very good for him. Of course, there is a great technical difference between one model and another.
The Hethel house model is one hundred percent electric and the Gaydon boys have had to settle for a “conventional” hybrid.

This consists of two motors (one on each axis) that allow it to offer a final performance of 950 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. To govern the 150kW / 400V hybrid powertrain it uses an 8-speed DCT automatic transmission. As a novelty it adds e-reverse system and electronic limited slip differential (E-Diff).
