The petrol/electric hybrid car has mouthwatering performance. The power output is 231 bhp plus 96 Kw giving a total of 357 bhp, and a massive 570 Nm of torque. A 0-60 mph acceleration time of 4.4 seconds is the result. The automatic gearbox keeps the car accelerating up to its 155 mph limit. The fuel efficiency is distorted by the hybrid system, but the official figures are 135 miles per gallon and 49 g/km of CO2.
