Debut of Hybrid Air Car

Hybrid Air Car Debuts at Geneva Motor Show
PARIS, France, February 19, 2013 (ENS) – PSA Peugeot-Citroën has developed a unique hybrid car powered by gasoline and compressed air called Hybrid Air that will debut in Geneva next month aboard a Citroen C3.

The new hybrid uses compressed air for energy storage instead of a battery, making it lighter weight and more affordable than other types of hybrid vehicles.

The Hybrid Air system combines a compressed air energy storage unit located in the center of the floor, a hydraulic pump/motor unit and an automatic transmission with an epicyclic geartrain and couples it with a PureTech petrol engine. read more>>>
