Adding an inline 11 HP e-motor to the driveshaft seems only not-hybrid due to the size of the e-motor. Make it a 111 HP w/ a larger battery and now you've got hybrid, right?

Add a plug and now it's a PHEV.

Seems to me BMW is going all hybrid, but trying to downplay it with wording, rather than function but ... tomato toMAHto?
