Hybrid BMW SUV?

That BMW with the hybrid component from Electrocharger? Looks like it’s an X5. More here. For some reason I think that this technology is going places, unless some company from the ‘dark side’ buys them out.

‘To this end, they’ve basically tripled the low rev urge of their X5 with electric assist. The standard torque of the 4.4 litre engine is about 470lbft. However, with electric assist, this jumps to a massive 1,350lbft (yes, you did read that correctly!)’
