Phoenix Motorcars and their motor supplier UQM Technologies have decided that they need to move beyond the pure battery only electric vehicles they are currently developing. They will be working together together to create a plug-in hybrid version of the sport utility truck that they have already shown. The drivetrain will use a series hybrid configuration with the engine being used as a range extender. The batteries will still be the AltairNano lithium titanate batteries being used in the current electric truck. Further details will be announced in the future. The sport utility truck is based on a South Korean built Ssangyong truck
