What does everyone think of the upcoming A250e plug-in hybrid? I wonder if it will be available in North America along with Europe?
Apparently it "will be powered by the same 1.3-liter turbo gasoline engine on the A200, which delivers 161 horsepower (120 kiloWatts) and 184 pound-feet (250 Newton-meters) torque. However, a gearbox-mounted electric motor will support the setup, adding 101 hp and 221 lb-ft. To withstand the high torque output, the transmission is said to be facilitated by an eight-speed setup found on the GLB-Class SUV.
It will also have an electric range of over 37 miles which is pretty handy.
