The P400 offers two driving modes: Parallel Hybrid mode and EV (Electric Vehicle) mode.

Those electric motors are powered by a 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery. Rapid charging can charge the battery in 2 hours 45 minutes using a dedicated or 32amp wall box. The standard cable charges the battery in 7 hours 30 minutes.
