    I can't imagine this 300hp car as being green...
    Wait...is it because of the better green per hp ratio?

    Frankly, to BMW (also Mercedes): hybrids are to be mainstream, not a wealthy-customer-only. And so much power is really needed for a daily use? X6 hybrid and ML450h ring a bell?

    IMHPOV "Premium" approach doesn't have to be linked to "stupid" approach.
