The rear-mounted powerplant is a 70 kW electric transaxle manufactured by Continental, with all integration activities completed by Continental Engineering Services (CES), one of the largest engineering service providers to the automotive industry, with engineering centres in Europe, the US and Far East. The RBW prototypes are being assembled by CES at its UK headquarters near Lichfield. The front-mounted batteries are supplied by Hyperdrive, and are the same type as those employed for the latest version of the Nissan Leaf.
