E-TECH HYBRID IN A NUTSHELL

ARKANA has a revolutionary hybrid technology, which is at the same time relevant, original and EXCLUSIVE. It’s the ideal technology to reduce running costs without changing habits. Arkana E-Tech hybrid doesn’t need to be plugged to recharge as its clever system uses recovered energy from braking phases as the main source of power to charge the battery. It will seamlessly switch between petrol and electric mode to optimise the driving performance and fuel efficiency. It delivers a smooth, silent and dynamic drive and combines the benefits of driving an automatic with the added comfort and responsiveness of an electric car.

Up to 80% of electric driving time in town

Up to 2 miles in 100% electric traction (EV switch activated)

Recovers energy while driving no charge needed

Up to 40% reduction compared to an equivalent petrol engine (WLTP city cycle) 4.9-5.0 L/100km (57.6 - 56.5 mpg) and from 108 g CO2/km (WLTP combined cycle)

12V MILD-HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
