Hybrid Scooter?

Saw this on Northern Tool and Equipment..
Q Electric Expresso PI Hybrid Scooter, Model# PIH 50 | Electric Scooters | Northern Tool + Equipment

Interesting.
Says 80 MPG for the engine - but i wonder if that is a combined rating.

not that i have an extra 2,500 lying around.. but is very interesting.

For some time, Honda has sold their little Metroplitan Scooter in Japan with an autostop feature that works like a hybrid's engine... stopping and restarting automatically with you.

Pedals

My Vespino has pedals which i use up hills and from standing starts. I can pedal the scooter up to 30km/hr on the flat but my legs are going round fairly quickly... If I fitted a hub motor in the front and some batteries I could have all 3...

80mpg from a 50cc engine is very doable.

I get 130mpg from my 4 stroke non hybrid Honda 50 or the manual states 180mpg @20mph, probably with a sub 140lb jockey.
