It includes a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with four cylinders and two electric motors. One of them, acting as a generator, is connected to a single-speed gearbox. The car is able to move in three modes: exclusively on electric traction, only using an internal combustion engine, and also in a combined cycle.

The basic modification of the car is completed with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine. Such a modification will be on sale in the autumn of this year. The hybrid version will be available only in the next year.

The car received a stretched wheelbase. Thanks to this machine is also available in the seven-seat version. The interior of the car is equipped with a 7-inch display and a large touch screen. The ground clearance of the crossover increased to 208 millimeters.

The prices for the model are still unknown. The main competitors of the car are called Volkswagen Tiguan and Nissan Qashqai.
