Designed to limit downtime, the Norwood and Rosedale Hybrid has a cutting-edge self-charging system that negates the need to plug in and recharge.

Most of the energy ordinarily lost through friction braking is recycled to recharge the high voltage, lightweight lithium-ion battery.

Smart technology ascertains the optimum moment to switch from petrol to electric, maximising fuel economy and reducing emissions. On long journeys, the exceptionally responsive 2.0 litre petrol engine takes over whilst on lower speed drives, the state of the art electric motor is employed. Upon acceleration, the petrol engine seamlessly supplies extra power to ensure an especially smooth drive.
