Sorry for the necroposting, but this is right on topic. Has anybody seen this (new?) Siemens hub motor? It is also suspension and steering and brakes (I cannot tell if it has purely regenerative braking, or any regen braking?):

I found out the video and the news releases are from 2006, so it doesn't seem to have gone anywhere?

i am thinink about (later on in life) doing a factory five racing GTM supercar kit, and pulling some parts and the ls1 engine out of a donor corvette c5, and putting them in. then once i have this done, i would do a hydrogen fuel assist system kinda like a water methanol injection system into the engine but substituted with HHO gas. Then i would like to get some custom electric hub motors mounted up to some rims i like.
the kit weighs about 2230lbs. and has about 350hp on a stock 5.7l ls1 engine.
then you add in the rims and everything.
i would think it would weight about 2500-2600lbs. when finished. what do you think of this?
if a stock corvette c5 is getting about 18/20 all around mpg, and it weighs 3221 and you get about another 3-4% for every 100lbs. you drop you would get an extra 40% in fuel economy(calculated with 2230 weight). then the hydrogen assist would get you about another 35%+ if hooked up right, and acetone if added in small amounts can add maybe 10% (but i think this only works in carbureted vehicles) because it aids in vaporization, but i dont think it would help in EFI engines. add 1/15th of a percent to how much fuel in your tank, or just 1-2 oz per tank is what ive heard. And i was thinking about these electric hub motors to put on here on the front 2 wheels. how much would this gain me on fuel economy?

projected fuel economy(w/o hub motors):
+40% because of weight reduction
+10% beacause of acetone in fuel
+35% because of hydrogen assist (can be more)
= 35 mpg
any additional info???

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.
