Volvo C30 is in parallel:
The most powerful 190 turbo engine (142 kW), three cylinders - C30 HP power back first, with a view of the engine, often with six-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels when driving in rural areas. 40 kW generator to recharge the battery unit 111 may be the only HP (82 kW) is a concept of an internal combustion engine 300 HP (224 kW) and a speed of 000-100 km / HR is consolidated. (62 miles) of electric car in less than six seconds, the keyboard 75 kilometers (47 miles).
