No, but it does have a box full of gears... :lol:

Clever system though, even if it is a tad complicated compared to a full EV.

Dunno what that lot is fitted into, but ours is much more compact in our Yaris.

Considering the car has an engine, it has no drive belts for anything.
No camshaft chain or belt because it doesn't have a camshaft, no waterpump belt, no fanbelt, no steering pump belt, no aircon pump, and no starter-motor.

One engine, two electric motors.

Two dogs got into conversation

'I am a Noble Hound, my pedigree is as long as your arm, I cannae even remember all of it', said one

'You are noble, but do not even know your name!', chortled the other dog. 'I know mine well enough: "get orf the sofa!"

I just bought a pen that writes underwater.




It writes other things, too.

This morning a bloke left his van engine running as he shopped in the supermarket. The name on the van side was BOORS LTD.
True story!

Winter had arrived in the land of Kernow. Along with it came wet roads and cool winds.

Kwackers is slightly wrong. There isn't a box full of gears, just some gearing to connect the motors and engine to the wheels.
