I have seen some companies simply add them together. They are wrong and kudos to BMW for being honest about the HP (actually as most of you know, BMW sandbags its HP so it actually going the opposite direction). Now if only they would up the HP for me.
Not sure that's true, what's the point of them advertising Xtraboost (which comes from the battery and is 50bhp on top of the 252) when the car only has 188bhp without the battery?
