PSA Peugeot Citroën has chosen to take up the challenge to create a vehicle environmentally friendly. For this, the Group is developing a hybrid gasoline and unique technology called Hybrid Air compressed air, a key step towards car 2l / 100km. The innovative element lies in the engine adaptability to the conduct of each. The engine rule independently on one of three modes of conduct can: zero emissions, thermal gasoline or mixed.
the group announced a gain of 45% for use in urban conditions for greater autonomy by 90% compared to a conventionally powered. this system could be applied to all vehicles (of all sizes).
This solution could be a real alternative to electrical cars. because the battery autonomy problem will be resolved with this solution.
I find this very interesting innovation because it allows to evaluate alternatives to “electric” and “thermal”.
