The novelty is in fact a hybrid car, with the propulsion system that consists of an internal combustion engine and electric motor. The modified 1.4-liter gasoline engine TFSI 150 hp coupled with a 100-horsepower electric motor will provide the car with great power output. According to the company, the new motor is integrated in a specially redesigned six-speed transmission eS tronic, which transfers torque to the front axle. In the end the fuel consumption of the model will be just 1,5 liter per every 100 kilometers.
