Is the motor different in size and weight from an internal combustion engine?
Compared to the 1.0 MPI engine fitted in conventional CITIGOs, the CITIGOᵉ iV’s electric motor is more compact and more or less the same weight.
The electric motor is smaller and easier to install than an ICE. As far as weight is concerned, the electric motor itself weighs 54.1 kg, which is a tad more than the internal combustion engine’s 50.5 kg. However, to make a proper powertrain comparison we should also factor in the gearbox. This results in a 70.4 kg electric motor and 80.2 kg ICE, mainly because the electric motor transmission has a single gear, making it much simpler and lighter.
