The EQ Boost technology features a 48-volt integrated starter motor, whilst paired with a combustion engine. That means better acceleration, lower emissions and improved efficiency.
The 48-volt system has dual purpose, acting as both a starter motor and a hybrid assist motor, and it doesn’t require you to plug in to charge; the intuitive system recuperates energy from braking and decelerating.
