For people who want to own a fully ICE performance car, yes, I think days are numbered. Especially for a hot hatch.
I give the example of the Suzuki Swift Sport Hybrid for what's likely coming - it has a tiny battery and generator that replaces the alternator, boosts mileage and adds like 40 lbs. But otherwise it's the same, ICE etc.

That's what they mean when companies say all our cars will be electrified by such and such date.

alternate facts, man.


I think once people experience an electric motor providing torque fill prior to a turbo's boost threshold, they're never going to want to go back. Just think of it: you could run a larger, nastier turbo coupled to a lower compression engine and still get excellent throttle response while getting way better better fuel mileage.
