It's got more power, naturally
Moreland says the company’s name (Vonnen) is a “made up”, before adding it’s also related to old Viking ships that used both sails and oars for greater speed. That’s not a bad analogy, either, as the electric motor slips in-between the gearbox and that flat-six, taking up just 26mm of space to do so and supplementing the power of the internal combustion engine.
Without getting too technical, there’s also an inverter to manage all the power, some cooling for all the electrical kit and some batteries under the floor of the luggage space in the 911’s nose. It’s self-charging - which means you don’t need to plug it in - gaining all its energy by scavenging back power where possible, and using regeneration via the motor, too.
If the Vonnen name’s got a cool backstory, then you’ve gotta love what they call the hybrid system - Shadow Drive. The Shadow Drive adds 77kg, the fitment of it meaning the original flywheel and starter motor are binned. All that brings and additional 148bhp and 148lb ft of torque, too.
