Rolls Royce Phantom Hybrid is a luxury sedan, fitted as it is with a 453-horsepower, 6.75-liter V-12 engine.
FIAT 500 OFFERS HYBRID VERSION
Fiat plans to pair its 900cc twin to a sophisticated dual-clutch transmission (DCT), which will include a very small 5-kilowatt electric motor inside to turn one of the gearbox’s two shafts.
The system will be a mild hybrid because it would not move solely on electric power. Instead, the electric motor which offers maximum torque from 0 rpm and will provide power to the drive wheels as well, requiring the engine to burn less gasoline.
