There is one more 9-inch screen dedicated to climate control and seat settings. An additional screen for the second-row passengers and an AR-HUD are available as extras. Other fine features of the Passion PHEV’s interior are a two-section sunroof, second-row right passenger’s leg rest, and a wireless charging pad.

Its combined power output reaches 390 kW (530 hp). The peak torque of this powertrain is 810 Nm. However, Passion PHEV isn’t exceptionally fast. Its zero-to-hundred acceleration time is 5.9 seconds. The top speed is 200 km/h.

Voyah says the Passion PHEV can drive from Beijing to Wuhan (1,155 km) without stopping. It is slightly more than the distance from Berlin to Paris.
