Sure? Porsche do it all the time, Cayman 3.4l S goes 30mpg. I`m not sure, but inline six is better platform than boxer engine if you want low fuel consuption.
Hybrid technology goes also cheaper when they start make i3 and i8 models. So why don´t put electric motor on back axel? Lots of torque on low revs(no lag) and more economy. Little more weight, but it´s located very good place.
