SVE (Société de véhicules électriques), an electric vehicle developer jointly created by the French companies Heuliez and Dassault, has launched this week a new hybrid powertrain called Cleanova Plus, which combines the firm’s battery-electric system with a spark ignition engine running on 100% bioethanol.

SVE has previously been known for its Cleanova II battery-electric powertrain, deployed in a Renault Kangoo, for which fleet orders are expected imminently.
