The word

This Concept II is an updated version of the gasoline-electric concept shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2010. The new version features an improved sports-hybrid all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The 3.5L gasoline engine powers the rear wheels with an in-line motor assist plus another motor powering the front wheels for AWD. The whole system maximizes at 295hp.
