    Range

    When driven in the Stealth Mode, the high-performance hybrid sports car can propel itself at up to 72 kmph, on nothing but electricity. However, the 160hp e-motor with its tiny 1.9 kWh battery pack won’t allow the car to go very far.

    That said, the electric motor’s job here is to add to the vehicle’s stability and provide a little zest during hard acceleration.
