Hybrid Mini

My first question, when reading about the hybrid mini developed by PML, is what would happen if you put this system into a larger car? 80 mpg is very impressive, even for a small car like the mini.

Inside Line: 80 MPG/150 MPH: Joystick Kings Create Electric Hybrid Mini -

The Mini QED — which stands for Quad Electric Drive, for the four electric motors, one in each wheel — was built with no involvement from BMW, Mini's owner. In fact, BMW wants Mini owners to know that this sort of conversion would invalidate a Mini's warranty.

But check out the numbers: zero emissions, zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph — and 80 mpg, thanks to an onboard engine/generator. The Mini QED does not need to be recharged, PML says.

Also, according to the article, the Mini QED has regenerative breaking.
