In Prologue coupe concept it is mounted with an eight speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. This combination in Prologue Allroad produces 724bhp and 900Nm of torque.

A 14. KWh lithium ion battery pack provides an all-electric range of 34 miles. On other hand it returns 117.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 56g/km. It is impressively swift with 0-62 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.
