Test Drive Against Market Leaders
AUTO BILD REPORT / HAMBURG
Even as a prototype the HyperHybrid powertrain competes with the greatest of ease against market-leaders in terms of efficiency. Mind you, that the competitors have a much better aerodynamic profile due to their exterior design. Good aerodynamic values are beneficial in terms of fuel consumption. The Trick: Always efficient and only as much performance as necessary.

Fuel economy instead of performance mania.
I’ve been waiting for A DRIVE LIKE THIS for a long time.
Super-economical for everyday driving, emission-free for 50 kilometres when you want it and no range problems. It’s also affordable to buy and multi-fuel, so it’s ready for synthetic fuels. Millions of commuters could make some real savings with it and still drive to Spain on their summer holidays. The only disadvantage: The top speed is limited. OBRIST is, however, ready for that with its modular construction system. Of course, the Geely doesn’t make for a particularly attractive base. My personal favourite would be the Audi A3 with HyperHybrid drive for the price of a TDI, for maybe 23,000 euros, around 13,000 less than today’s e-tron. That’s how I see the future of the burners!
