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!)’
