Vauxhall Flextreme GT/E Concept - Propulsion technology

Propulsion technology

The Flextreme GT/E Concept uses an evolution of the Voltec power system of the Vauxhall Ampera, demonstrating that it can be used in large, high-performance cars. The Vauxhall Flextreme GT/E Concept is not a hybrid, but an Extended Range Electric Vehicle (E-REV). This means that it is electrically driven at all times.

Features and benefits include:

  • Near-silent electric power delivering up to 120 kW and 370 Nm torque, or the equivalent of 150 hp right from the start
  • Enabling a 124 mph top speed and 9 seconds 0-60 performance
  • Fuel costs cut drastically
  • Battery charging in 2-3 hours from any household power outlet
  • Up to 37 miles driving range on pure, clean electric power from a 16 kWh lithium-ion battery pack
  • Electro-magnetic brakes for energy recuperation
  • Activating the combustion engine extends the range up to 310 km, while keeping the batteries charged and maintaining the performance until the next recharge
  • With the 1.4-litre, 82 PS engine, running emissions are just 40 g/km CO2 with 176 mpg fuel consumption.
