The Power for the Drive

Yes, this version of the Outlander is going to bring you a complex powertrain, because it has both a battery-electric system and a gasoline system for the drive. There’s a 2.0-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors for the drive. The electric power is stored in the high-capacity 12-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that has eighty cells and was created just for this SUV. This means you have 117 horsepower and 137 lb.-ft. of torque from the gasoline engine and 80 horsepower from each of the two electric motors to give you a smooth and active drive.
