BMW on their own to develop hybrid

BMW was in joint venture with PSA Peugeot Cintroën to develop a high performance hybrid unlike the current models from Japan ... and guess what???? The PSA group is about to go belly up, decided to implement draconian measurement to cut costs by initiating massive lay offs. The French auto union workers retaliated with a déclaration de guerre against the PSA Auto Group. Ironically Peugeot has a gorgeous line of smaller models very conducive for hybrid application... I applaud the wise decision of BMW Group to pull out of the deal and develop the high performance hybrid vehicles on their own. I just hope the BMW hybrid can quality for the Clean Vehicle Program's GREEN PASS so that us folks in the greater NY metropolitan area can enjoy discounted non-peak tolls at any of the tunnel/bridge crossings.

Sou fanático por conversíveis...
