sports a hybrid system in which parallel engines give power to both the front and rear axles. The system, called E-Boost, is said to deliver continuous power even when the six-speed manual transmission changes gears. The sport coupe's front wheels are powered by a 3.8-liter V6 featuring valve timing and lift electronic control. The rear wheels are driven by a rear-mounted 150-kW electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery that provides 200 hp for a total of 470 hp. Speed aside, the hybrid powertrain improves fuel economy and lowers emissions. The car rides on 20-in. aluminum-alloy wheels with independent multilinks at all four corners.
On the interior, a plasma bulb sits in the center console and, when the hybrid motor switches on, the plasma indicator light glows. Plasma running lights and taillights, neon crackle-tube indicators and brake lights, and a glass roof help illuminate the Concept-E.
