Kepler Motion supercar

In 2009, Kepler Motors announced a hybrid supercar concept at the 2009 Dubai International Motor Show that offers the combined power of 800 hp. At that time the engine will be powered by Ford's new EcoBoost 3.5-liter and a pair of electric motors. These cars are called Kepler Motion hybrid supercar.

And in 2012, Kepler released a video of their hybrid supercar. This supercar equipped with launch control, active suspension, carbon ceramic brakes and AeroWheels lightweight with the carbon fiber monocoque body and chassis. Kepler Motion Hybrid claimed can accelerate from 0-100 kph (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds, and can reach a maximum speed of more than 321 kph (200 mph).

The 550 hp of power which generated by the tuned twin-turbo, Ford EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 (derived from the Ford Taurus) to drove its rear wheel, and two electric motors with the power of of 250 hp to rolled the front wheels, thus increasing the mechanical strength of up to 800 hp, when it uses all-wheel.

One of the distinguishing the hybrid technology features with others is the use of electric motors in the front wheels, which is separate from its petrol engine in the rear. Other hybrids, such as the Toyota Prius, which operates using electric motors and petrol engines in parallel to jointly turning the front wheels, this is know as parallel hybrid.

Kepler Motion itself is a series hybrid electric vehicle that is operated by using a petrol engine to charge the batteries while one or more electric motors propel the vehicle itself, which called is series hybrid.
There is another similar type of series hybrid vehicles. And known as Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (EREV). Examples of Erev is the Chevy Volt. This vehicle operates with its electric motor as power source at all times. So do not use the petrol engine to drive the wheels, and also does not use combustion engine-powered as a generator to charge the battery.
Kepler Motors said Motion Hybrid will be produced in limited numbers, i.e only 50 units. Kepler is currently preparing the supercars that will be sent immediately. *** [EKA | FRM VARIOUS SOURCES | KEPLER MOTORS | AUTOBLOG]
