When the engine and electric motor work together, the unit delivers full 903 horse power and 664 lb-ft of torque. While working on its own , the 3.8 liter eight cylinder produces 727 horse power and 531 lb-ft. The electric motor can declutch from the driveline and gives 177 horse power and an effective torque of 192 lb-ft. The 324-cell battery can be charged either by a wall plug stored in the luggage compartment or by the electric model on deceleration.
