Clever technologies

The Metropolis features a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that chooses the best operating mode at the time.

Electric mode only

Full-electric mode is used when you start driving, in the city, at low speeds and when you decelerate. It relies on an electric motor that can raise its output from 55 bhp (40kW) to a peak of 95 bhp (70kW).

Combustion mode only

The combustion mode is used when you're cruising on the open road or the motorway, and the V6 2.0l (272 bhp) petrol engine performs at maximum efficiency.

Over-boost function

The over-boost function combines the electric and combustion modes to give you extra power when you accelerate, delivering up to 460 bhp in four-wheel drive mode when you need more grip.

Driveability and responsibility

Metropolis isn't just great to drive - it's kind to the environment too. CO₂ emissions are slashed more than fivefold thanks to:

  • an optimised petrol engine
  • a seven-speed dual-clutch electronic gearbox
  • a hybrid drivetrain
  • hydractive suspension for improved aerodynamics
