Why don't more car manufacturers use hybrids based on BMW I8 to reduce emissions instead of pushing all electric which needs infrastructure? There are several manufacturers which make hybrids and plugin hybrids. But I will make a simple case with Hyundai which produces two cars - to show the difference in all technologies and how this electric part increases the efficiency and lowers emissions, the more batteries are added. Hyundai Ioniq,, which is made in 3 versions and ,Hyundai Elantra,, generally a similar, although slightly bigger car with a few versions of combustion engines - just for comparison. Let’s start with ,Elantra,. EPA efficiency: 28 mpg‑US (8.4 L/100 km) in the city and ,38 mpg, (6.2 L/100 km) ,on the highway Hyundai Hybrid,: 78 kW 1,6 liter engine and 32 kW electric motor, total output 104 kW. Fuel efficiency: ,57 mpg,. Ioniq Plugin-Hybrid, (a somewhat similar drive train like the BMW i8). The EPA rating is ,125 mpg-e, but only while driving in electric mode, where the range is 29 miles (according to EPA) - real world range is supposed to be 22 miles. But there is the Hyundai ,Ioniq Electric, - ,136 mpg-e,. A conclusion: Petrol cars make some tolerable efficiency on highways, but are terrible in cities. Hybrids rise those efficiencies, but mostly due to their regerative breaking in cities. Plugin hybrids are highly efficient, similar to electric cars, but only while the battery lasts. Electric cars are the most efficient through the whole charge, are more than twice as efficient as hybrids and three times as efficient as petrol cars. TL;DR A lot of numbers and I am missing the point of the question, I know. https://ev-database.uk/car/1157/BMW-i8-Coupe The i8 has 369 HP and 275 kW, a 0 - 60 mph in 4,4 seconds. T BMW i8 is a plugin-hybrid - that one actually needs a power outlet, without that one it hauls some dead weight around - a battery that is bigger than ever needed if the car is never plugged in. Yes, the electric motor has 98 kW - but it lasts only a few minutes. The electric range is tiny, only 5,4 kWh of the 7,1 kWh battery is usable. Electric range? Tested while driving on eggshells (90 km/h - 56 mph at constant speed) is 23 km / 14 miles. Expect in normal usage more like 15 km / 10 miles, maybe a bit more in summer. This most likely wouldn’t bring you through daily errands, would it? You may like the design - but basically it is a petrol car with a rather small 1,5 liter turbocharged 228 HP (170 kW) petrol engine (with a fake V8 sound) - with an electric motor to add some oomph :) This car is not made to reduce emissions, - it is rather a petrol car with an electric booster. Nothing more. What you actually might be thinking are cars like the before mentioned Hyundai Ioniq ,Plugin Hybrid., Yes, this one has an electric range that is twice as big (as mentioned before) - but didn’t you say that you don’t want to plug in your car? But then we are back again to ,pure hybrids., There is a ton of hybrids across the whole industry, but a hybrid drive train is beneficial only in cities. Stop-and-go traffic. On highways and even more on freeways its benefit is close to non-existent, but it significantly add to the complexity (and cost) of the car.
Well Formula E used to run with 2 cars per driver too allow for a decent racing time of 50 minutes. They have about 250hp, weighting 720kg (800 plus driver) and a 28kW battery of 200kg. BMW takes covers off season five challenger – Formula E Normal GT race cars have a minimum weight of 1245 kg, as EVs that would likely go up, lets say 1600 kg, for maybe 500hp and 60kW batteries, to be exchanges at every pit stop? There is already a Jaguar I-Pace series planned for 2018/19 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY reveals list of cities for inaugural season – Formula E There is at least one team who want to run in the Le Mans 24 hours, as experimental in 2019: Lets see how they will do, they plan on 1000hp, about 1300kg (200kg heavier than other experimentals, mainly hybrids). Could be fun, they will not win, for years.,Formula E motors to power electric Perrinn Le Mans prototype In any case, the GT class would be slower (because heavier, and battery limited) and will need more pit stops, best with changed battery packs, and it will not be half as noisy. But racing is not about speed, it is about competition, so why not? It should be about learning for the streets and could be a great way to introduce new EV technologies.
Technology comes at cost. As fancy as it sounds which could develop power under braking or ‘,brake energy recovery system,’ or ,‘kinetic energy recovery system’ [KERS] ,and further utilising this energy system stored in the form of electrical energy to run a motor for better accleration and enhanced performance is not meant for commuter vehicles or two wheelers which are not ideal and designed for daily basis. This technology is very complex because: adds weight to the vehicle, tyre wears out quickly and needs to be replaced frequently. Cost of the vehicle increases. Frequent service should be done since poor batteries always have trouble over long run. Complex to handle the vehicle. With the advancement of technology, anything can be done today. But the question arises, ‘At what cost?’ and the demand in the market. So far this technology has been adopted in Formula 1 [F1] since 2014. When it comes to supercars few of them have adopted [ex: BMW i8] while the most of them still rely on reciprocating engines.
Slightly odd question (sorry!); are there any downsides in using any car? Yes, depends on the car. Same answer for hybrids; some of them are small, some are large; some are full-on sports cars (BMW i8 for example) with all the compromises around capacity/visibility etc. that brings. Mainstream models that have been adapted to hybrid tend to lose something along the way, generally a bit of space somewhere, and the batteries add some weight over other models. This latter issue is considerably less of one than in the early days, as batteries have improved kW/kg, and many (all?) plug-in PHEVs have lighter engines than their non-EV counterparts (petrol v. diesel, often smaller litreage also). There can be driving “feel” issues around the switch from electric to petrol, a noticeable lurch in acceleration, depending on how the manufacturer solved that issue. BMWs do it transparently, Volvo a distinct step - but then the Volvos have managed minimal compromise with internal capacity (so if space/people capacity is your hybrid thing, you probably want an XC90). The only near-universal downside (as such) is the “nitrous” effect; namely that your hybrid vehicle will tend to offer maximum performance only when the battery is charged. For leccyheads this is an annoyance, but reminiscent of the days when nitrous oxide kits got fitted to petrol engine cars (which gave a major power boost while the nitrous flowed - which isn’t for very long) except the power’s available for longer, tapers off as the battery is used up and can be recharged while driving. Eco-warriors will tell the downside is it’s still not a pure EV. But unless you only do long trips for leisure and know there’s a charging station at your each end of your journey, pure (battery) EVs are mostly downside. Hybrids bring best of both worlds; 0 (local) pollutants in the urban driving, great range/fast journey times/fast refuel for the longer journeys.
The BMW i8 is a hybrid car, so it's more comparable to the Toyota Prius than the Tesla cars. But if we were to compare them anyway... The biggest difference is the battery capacity. The Tesla has two options: 60 or 85 kWh. The BMW has 7 kWh. This of course makes the range much lower, 20 miles compared to 265 miles for the Tesla with the larger battery, which is why it also has an internal combustion engine. The smaller battery means lower weight: 1,490 kg compared to 2,100 kg for the Tesla.
As Anvesh mentioned gasoline cars doesn't reqire their power to be obtained from a battery except for starting the car. After starting the car an alternator(basically a generator) will start producing current. So basic battery which can hold current is mostly sufficient. But in the case of electric cars like tesla or hybrid cars like BMW i8 power for driving the car comes from a battery. So the battery has to hold lot of charge in small form factor and weight. This is where li io batteries are preffered. But they are extremely costly when compared to batteries used in cars now.
Well, it depends. I would love to have this 3 cylinder under my bonnet, any time: Nissan build this 80 pound beast 1.5l displacement engine for LeMans, it delivers 400hp! A three cylinder will not be the most smooth running engine you ever bought, they tend to run a bit rougher than 4 cylinders. The have a bit less internal friction (one less set of pistons, one less set of valves with all touching/moving surfaces and less bearings. ,They are lighter, a lot. and smaller., So if you intend to run your car downtown, or lots of stop and go, this is your engine, cheaper, lighter, better gas mileage and the rough running will not bother you. I heard (see comments) the BMW 3 cylinder even runs smoother than the 4 cylinder, in a BMW 3 series (or mini) and saves 130kg or so. It seems a lot of fun, but the 4 cylinders have more power and torque, of course. If you run a lot on motorways, you will probably be better off with a 4 cylinder. It runs usually smoother (but 3 cylinders can be tamed with balances), the extra weight will mot make much difference and the gas mileage is likely the same, or even better if you push your engine hard. My dad has a Skoda with 3 cylinders, first you notice the rough running, after a while it gets normal, a bit raunchy. It is a great little runner, but do not expect to hunt BMW down the Autobahn, not even the three cylinder versions! Far away from the Skoda is the BMW i8, that also runs on a high tech 3 cylinder, and squeezes 231hp out of the 1.5l turbo. This is 154hp per liter displacement motorcycle territory (well they can get this without turbos, but are not as robust). So here the main reason will have been weight and size; the car running on ICE alone has not a very low fuel mileage, but with the batteries and EV carries a lot of weight, so it is still pretty good, and the 3cylinder help to save weight and space to get a sexy car with very good combined gas mileage.
When you say current form, what do you mean? Internal combustion cars that depend on electricity for computerization, timing, emissions control, fuel injection, engine management, lights, starting, entertainment and safety features? Examples: every gas car built in the past 100 years. Parallel hybrid gas-electric cars that depend on batteries to give them more oomph off of the line, regenerative braking and significant range extension on a tank of gas, often plug-in overnight, and that have one drive train fully electric and another fully gas? Examples: Honda Civic Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid, Lexus RX400H, BMW X5 eDrive, etc, etc, etc. Series hybrid gas-electric cars that depend on batteries to give them more oomph, regenerative braking and significant range extension on a tank of gas and typically plug-in at night, but whose gas motor is really only there to charge the batteries or provide electricity directly to the electric motors? Examples: BMW i3 with Range Extender, Fisker Karma? Hybrid sports cars that have both electric and gas motors so that they go amazingly fast, having better performance than anything else on the road? Examples: 2015 Porsche 981 Spyder with 2.2 seconds 0-60, Ferrari LaFerrari with 2.4 seconds 0.60, BMW i8. Fully electric cars that have zero emissions at all, no gas components, go like stink off of the line and have much lower complexity and maintenance than any of the above? Examples: Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X (September 2015)? So the answer is that the first type of electrified car, the one that gets all of it's motive power solely from burning millions of year old plants doesn't have a future. Too stinky, too slow, too noisy, too inefficient, too polluting. It's going to die off. Parallel hybrids will last a few more years, but they don't make a lot of sense either. The gas engine has to have all this gearing and complexity and is always running too fast or too slow for it to be really efficient. And typically the battery range sucks. They are too heavy, complex and inefficient to last a long time. Plug in series hybrids are going to be around for quite a while. They only call on the gas motor when unusual range requirements exist, they are always full in the morning like proper electric cars, they are much quieter much more of the time, and they are less complex because you aren't trying to inefficiently match engine RPMs to wheel RPMs. They are still kind of dumb, because you could take that extra space, weight and complexity and simplify it by adding batteries and Supercharger compatibility, but there's an argument for them. Hybrid sports cars will be around for likely a shorter time than plug-in series hybrids simply because pure electric cars will surpass them soon. Already the two very fast examples aren't that much faster than a five person luxury sedan that's fully electric. When the new Tesla Roadster comes out in 2019, I suspect it will be the fastest production car to 60 ever, and likely lap the Nurburgring at exotic speeds. Pure electric cars are the current idealized form of automotive transport. They will be in use until magic happens and cars are powered by unicorn farts and rainbows. They will merely improve from the fastest luxury sedan in the world to include the fastest of every form of car. They will keep getting cheaper and cheaper and better and better, but they will still recognizably be cars with batteries and motors. Like my content? Help it spread via ,Patreon,.

What you are describing is called a pluggable hybrid. It’s an electric vehicle that has a gas “backup” or more commonly referred to as a range extender. There are several models on the market currently. They can differ in how they are engineered, mind you. But here is a short list that I can think of off the top of my head. Honda Clarity Chevrolet Volt BMW i3 BMW i8 BMW X5 Toyota Prius Prime Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Ford C-Max Energi Ford Fusion Energi Mercedes C350e Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid One reason there aren’t more of these is due to a couple limiting factors. EVs are already expensive due to the cost of the battery. On top of an already expensive car, they then have to add an expensive engine. Keep in mind, the engine has to be pretty big to push a big enough generator to maintain charge at highway speeds. So the size of the engine creates an added cost to the vehicle. In addition to the cost, an engine adds considerable weight to an already heavy car. That pulls down effecientcy. When driving in electric mode, you are still hauling around the weight of a gas engine and a tank full of gas that shortens the electric range. There is also the engineering of the whole thing. A large battery has to be on board. Then you have to find room for the engine and the components associated with the engine. That’s a lot of space to take up for something that you then try to avoid using. I know this idea will sound crazy but I would like to see the development of power trailers. Think of a small trailer with a gas engine and a generator inside. You could hook it up for trips and leave it behind for daily driving. I know not everyone would want to deal with a trailer but that would be the ideal setup to me.
There are Several Factors to be consider it couple a petrol engine and electric motor or generator . 1.The main issue arises due to the lack of good battery (if i say in simple terms ), But the car makers have devolved good battery like lithium ion battery stuff for the car.That what we can see in the BMW i8. Which is coupled with a 1.5L petrol engine and 133 HP something figure Electric motor to run the car 2.The second challenge car development the weight of the body ,motor battery.If you might thinking the weight of battery of normal car 12V 45/65 AH battery compare an electric car or hybrid car battery weight .for this case Scientists have devolved Lithium ion battery for E Vs and hybrid cars . 3.This one is the main..The Economic Feasibility of the car. eg:If Environmentalist thinking to buy electric car upon fuel running car..He might to spent too much money.. But Companies like Tesla and Nissan Leaf have devolved EVs and Hybrid Ones with Much much Efficiency…SO if need to look out the engineering platform of this .take a deep search on these too vehicle . Look ..Chevrolet (Chevy )had a best hybrid car in the world but that project was destroyed because it came threat to the oil companies .
