From Classic Driver:

So how does it work? Quite complicatedly, as it turns out. Essentially, each wheel has its own electric motor, drawing power from a central ‘Nanoflowcell’, a new chemical battery system capable of storing and releasing electrical energy at extremely high densities. Allegedly, the technology is a ‘beacon of hope’ for the future of electric transport, owing to its compact, powerful and effective nature. It will also charge much more quickly than conventional batteries. The figures speak for themselves – 217mph, 0-60mph in 2.8sec and a range of over 600km.
