    Some hasbeen used in motorsport for a while.

    That's all about setting the rules. Without knowing them it's waste of time to discuss the topic especially if it's going to be a given system same for all manufacturers, i.e. without any chance of choice.

    Well, it all depends. Maybe due to time pressure till 22, the first batch could be sole scource on the hybrid part, but in the long run, for sure not.
    For new manufacturers they have to get some internal R&D in return for a Rally investment.

    F1 are looking at totally new ways: https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/n...ener-formula-e

    PSA are working on compressed air; https://www.groupe-psa.com/en/newsro...on/hybrid-air/
    And el-motors: https://www.groupe-psa.com/en/newsro...ation/hybrid4/

    volvo/polestar https://www.polestar.com/cars/polestar-1

    And we will see other initiativs and ideas once the engineers starts putting hours into the future!

    I wouldn't bet on that at all.
