A Hybrid a Car Guy Can Love...Kepler Motion

Kepler Motors is a relatively unknown auto manufacture quite simply because they are so new to the scene. Still in its infant stages, Keplar has been looking toward the future in regards to what the wealthy will want in their super cars. So, they've opted to use a tuned version of Ford's EcoBoost V6, making 550HP to the rear wheels. The front wheels are where the term "hybrid" comes into play. Each hub has one electric motor with about 125 horses. To put that into perspective, most hybrids on the market today have roughly 60-110HP. This hybrid has that much power in one wheel. Kinda makes it a little better-looking now, huh? It can sprint from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds and will sound great doing it. Hopefully, we will start to see some performance-oriented hybrids that will more accessible to the common man. Can anyone say Honda CR-Z?
