8. A Hybrid Supercar?!
Yep, you read it right. Like a Toyota Prius the P1 is actually a hybrid. Its battery weighs just 96 kilograms, about 212 pounds, and can provide a pure-electric range of up to 20 kilometers in low-speed city driving. To keep the car’s center of gravity as low as possible it’s mounted to the underside of the chassis. To optimize performance and reliability the pack is liquid cooled.
Of course regenerative braking is part of the P1’s powertrain but that’s not the only way to juice the battery. The car is also equipped with a plug-in charger, which can take the pack from completely empty to 100 percent full in just two hours.
