It's always exciting when automakers announce their intentions to work collaborate in the effort to create new and better vehicles and technology. We now have BMW and Peugeot, which have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding, pledging to expand their engineering collaboration to include a new hybrid system. Actually, this is supposed to be a hybrid drive for front-wheel drive vehicles, and it marks a departure for both automakers.
It isn't really a surprise to see BMW diving right now this project. Although there aren't any details just yet on BMW's UKL line, this could be the development that provides a hybrid option for the range. In another twist, Mini could possible get in on this too. A good move considering the Yaris hybrid that'll be joining the Prius line soon. Photos displayed are of the 2010 BMW X6 ActiveHybrid & 2012 Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4
