The electric motor is integrated into the housing for the eight-speed automatic transmission. Combined, the drivetrain is configured to deliver a maximum output of 335 hp (340 PS / 250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque.

The lithium-ion battery pack provides the Active Hybrid 5 with an all-electric range of up to four kilometers (2.5 miles) at an average speed of 22 mph (35 km/h). The car can also reach 37 mph (60 km/h) in all-electric mode for a brief time. The 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint on the Active Hybrid 5 takes 5.9 seconds.

Fuel-economy can be as low as 44 mpg imp (6.4 liters/100 km) with CO2 emissions of just 149 g/km on the EU test cycle but varies depending on tire specifications.

The car features an auto stop/start system and, in ECO PRO mode, the Active Hybrid 5 can also coast with the engine shut off at speeds of up to 100 mph (160 km/h).
