"first race car in history to complete a lap during a formal race with absolutely zero emissions" The summary is demonstrably untrue for anyone willing to perform the most basic search. A fully electric race from 2011. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... Given that it's in France the battery charging power would come from a nuclear plant, making this truly zero emission racing.

And where is the engine stored when not in use? It'll need a garage, with room to spare, equipped with a hoist.. or require a drive to a storage facility before a journey can even be started? On a more practical note there is now a diesel / electric hybrid, from mainstream car company Peugeot. It has separate drivetrains like the concept car in the article, but uses them to give the option of 2 or 4 wheel drive. http://www.reghardware.com/2012/03/06/preview_peugeot_3008_hybrid4_worlds_first_diesel_electric_hybrid_car/
