Protean Electric in-wheel motors have the stuff to make an F-150 turn green

This has been around for a couple of years. I wrote to the Protean company to see about licencing the technology and heard nothing back. Apparently they have contracted with Alibaba in China to produce them. The F150 is the vehicle I wanted to try it on. Even at 23 MPG in mine it is too much to drive daily. I would like to put it on my Focus too with a small generator in the engine bay to save on battery weight and achieve longer distances. My commute twice a week is 160 miles one way.
