This whole assembly is then hooked to a couple of electric motors which could provide up to 170 horse power and 332 N*m of torque if required. There is one in the front as well as one in the back, thus even if you use this in a completely electric mode; the car would still have four wheel drives.

The release date for the new model will most likely be in the first quarter of 2015 so as to be released together with the new Pajero.
