Yeah, hybrids can put down some insane power.

The gas engine is the same model as some other cars (I forget which one) so there are performance parts avalible for it, along with a supercharger.

As for the electric engine, it's programming is based on algorithems. These tell the engine how to perform and what it should be limited to. But the great part about that is, you could re-program them at will. Just wire your computer in, and you could modify the electric engine to go from econo to maximum performance. You could easily have it putting out major power 9for small amounts of time obviously. 24/7 would kill it).

But the cool thing is, you could drive to the track, program it for power, and then re-program it and get 40+ mpg on the way home. It would be that easy.
