Combining a 1-litre 69 bhp petrol engine with a 12-volt belt-integrated starter generator, the Panda has gone mild-hybrid. The starter generator harvests energy normally lost while decelerating, then uses it to help the petrol engine out while it’s under load. According to the official tests, the system helps the car return 49.6 mpg and CO2 emissions of 89 g per kilometre.
