The S Hybrid isn't much quicker in a straight line, but the bigger 18-kWh battery should boost EV range from 16 miles to an estimated 27 miles before the hybrid motor kicks in.

The Azure Hybrid's suspension is more supple than the standard model and is tuned to reduce low frequency road noise and, as a result, passenger stress levels.
