8) How Does the Range Extender work?

The range extender is an energy generator based on a suitably marinized automotive-derived diesel engine. Its purpose is to recharge the battery pack, so it is much more compact and lighter than a diesel engine intended for propulsion, which leads it to have an exceptional power/weight ratio with very low fuel consumption. It is only used in “DeepSpeed ​​Hybrid” systems, which however allows navigating in full-electric mode when the range-extender is deactivated.
