As previously mentioned, this sedan has a hybrid transmission. The transmission of the PHEV is based on a 7-speed automatic transmission. What’s great about that fact is while this car moves just as easily as any other vehicle with an automatic transmission, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that enables such desirable performance.

In addition to handling a lot of efficiencies behind the scenes, the PHEV also provides cues to help drivers maximize performance. For example, if there’s a time when a driver can take their foot off the pedal and enjoy cruising along, the PHEV will send a signal to make this known.

To maximize safety and performance, the battery for this hybrid is located in the rear. That positioning also saves space in the PHEV. What’s really appealing about this hybrid is instead of requiring any type of special charging equipment, it can literally be plugged into any household socket. This also means that it can be charged at gas stations, hotels or any other location that has a regular outlet. Not only is charging the PHEV convenient, but it can also be done in just 2 to 3 hours.
