mild hybrid 140 hp EDC and 160 hp

  • 12 V battery 
  •  1.3 L compressed petrol combustion engine 
  •  EDC automatic gearbox 
  •  reduced CO₂ emissions
Arkana’s mild hybrid technology combines the power of the 140 hp and 160 hp, 1.3 L compressed petrol engine with the assistance of the 12 V mild hybrid electric system for enhanced efficiency. The Lithium-ion battery that powers the system recharges itself by recovering kinetic energy during deceleration.
main characteristics
The electric assistance limits the impact of the combustion engine during the start-up and acceleration phases, by reducing fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. This gives you a smoother and more energetic ride for greater driving comfort.
