Beta ETK800 Hybrid 1.0

High-performance hybrid version of the ETK856 hatchback car

    It's the car every BeamNG driver has been waiting for! The ETK856 hatchback, now available in a sporty new Hybrid model.

    This new configuration of the ETK800 is built on the same Hybrid powertrain system as my "citybus" hybrid mod. It uses the same exact code and parts, simply configured for a performance sport hatchback instead of a huge bulky transit bus. As with most hybrid cars, it features pure electric driving below a certain speed, with the engine stopping completely when it's not needed. With the standard configuration, it will reach 60MPH from a stop in just under 5 seconds. In addition to the standard configuration, there is also a race configuration equipped with racing tires/brakes, a larger battery, and a more powerful electric motor to yield a 0-60 time of 3.68 seconds.

    Both models are also capable of driving at higher speeds (for short distances) in "pure electric" mode similar to the city bus. This "EV" mode can be toggled by pressing "E" on the keyboard. Also like the citybus, the vehicle includes a "battery charge" mode activated with Shift + E (while in Park) that will use the engine to charge the hybrid battery relatively quickly.

    For the best performance during a drag race, it is recommended that you charge the battery all the way (95%) and pre-start the engine by holding both the brake and gas pedals (the engine will start, but not rev). Launch the vehicle when ready by releasing the brake pedal. The engine will rev up shortly after you launch to pick up the slack when the electric motor begins to lose torque.

    If you're one of those people who is mindful of their carbon impact (who would want to pollute the gorgeous maps of BeamNG?), you'll be delighted to find that the standard ETK856 Hybrid will get upwards of 30 MPG driving around town, and between 9-15 MPG on the race track depending on how well you're doing ;)

    It will not work for me. I can't find the eCVT transmission option. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

      Have you tried restarting the game since subscribing to the mod? Also, if you have any other mods installed that would change the ETK800 powertrain, there is a chance they might conflict with the device options for the ETK

    This mod is wonderful. One problem though. It seems to be incompatible with the regular configs in the game.

      I think I know the problem you're referring to...there's an actual bug in the game itself when a vehicle with custom powertrain devices is loaded before any other vehicles. If you load another vehicle (not another configuration, another vehicle altogether) before loading the ETK800 or the Citybus, you should then be able to switch to a normal configuration just fine.

      You can actually swap the built-in ETK I4 engine in and it'll work fine ;) I didn't include a configuration for that, but you could save your own. I haven't found a way to do custom tachometers yet but that'd be a neat idea

    Excellent mod, now we can have the torque of an electric car, and the speed of a gasoline car!

    This is great just like the bus version. I love both. I'm wondering if it's possible to make a system that makes the engine shut off when holding the brakepedal at 100% during red lights or shut off when it's not needed for charging automatically for better fuel mileage

      This one will shut the engine off even without the brake pedal pressed, as long as you're under a certain speed. The coolant has to be warmed up enough. I made a forum post last month about an experimental "auto-stop" like you're describing for a non-hybrid vehicle but I haven't released it as a mod.
