« on: July 05, 2014, 02:33:03 AM »


For decades, automobile manufacturers are checking out the proper environmentally friendly fuel.


Now, one firm claim to have found the solution – a automobile which will run on nothing over air.

The Peugeot 2008 Hybrid Air guarantees to be additional ecologically sound than the present breed of ‘green’ vehicles that mix electrical engines with ancient ones.

Under the bonnet: This diagram shows however the new hybrid automobile works. while the it's moving, air is wired into a cylinder exploitation surplus energy from the gas engine, and energy from the wheels and warmth from the brakes


Clean driving: The Peugeot 2008 Hybrid Air encompasses a standard gas engine connected to a hydraulic air motor and pump, permitting it to run on air, petrol, or a mixture of the 2 - depending on driving conditions

Behind the wheel: A stripped-back check out the new hybrid. Motorists are ready to use zero-emissions aggregation for lower-speed driving. The feature is activated mechanically once the automobile is doing underneath 43mph

It has a standard gas engine connected to a hydraulic air motor and pump.

While the automobile is moving, air is pumped-up into a cylinder – similar to a balloon being inflated – using surplus energy from the gas engine, and energy from the wheels and warmth from the brakes.

The air is then discharged to drive the hydraulic motor – permitting the automobile to run on air, petrol, or a mix of the 2.

Motorists are ready to use zero-emissions aggregation for lower-speed driving in cities. The feature is  activated mechanically once the automobile is doing underneath 43mph.
 

When fast or ascent hills, combined or ‘hybrid’ mode is preferred because the vehicle receives power from each engines. And for long-distance cruising, ancient petrol power is best.

Current hybrids – like the popular Toyota Prius – rely on serious and costly batteries that are tough to lose, inflicting their own environmental issues. they'll conjointly go flat and leave the motive force stranded.

In distinction, the new Peugeot will want no batteries. Instead, it'll fill again itself mechanically by re-using energy that's ‘lost’ once retardation down  and braking.
