"The technological centerpiece of ELR is an advanced electric drive propulsion system that features an onboard, range-extending, gas-powered generator. It provides instant torque and the smooth, shiftless acceleration of electric drive, while keeping gas power on reserve for longer journeys. In addition, dual-side paddle controls provide regeneration on demand, putting energy back into your battery while slowing you down."
