Compared to the XIV-2 Concept on which it’s based, the e-XIV adopts a number of hi-tech details that underline the eco-friendly drivetrain and technologies.

The tires were developed specifically for increasing efficiency and have a tread design which improves grip while reducing friction.

Technical Features

The e-XIV is powered by an 80-kW Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), giving a range of 80km by taking power from the 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. Four hours are required for charging a fully discharged battery, and 20 minutes for quick recharging.

The car also features a range extending system comprising a two-cylinder 1,000cc petrol engine and a 20-kW generator. Once the 80km distance has been achieved, the petrol engine supplies additional power via the generator to extend the range up to 600km, emitting just 45g/km of CO2.
