Hybrid technology goes also cheaper when they start make i3 and i8 models. So why donīt put electric motor on back axel? Lots of torque on low revs(no lag) and more economy. Little more weight, but itīs located very good place.
N/A isn't the problem, it was the S54. But the fact remains that a turbo charged engine gets better mileage on government efficiency tests. I do think you're right that we'll eventually see more and better integration of hybrid powertrains in performance oriented cars though.
