An inexpensive device can possibly transform ordinary cars into equivalents of hybrids. Car owners will need to add the device so they can plug in the car and charge batteries. These power the car using hub motors that helps the engine accelerate reducing the amount of petrol needed.
The Middle Tennessee State University have successfully tested the device on a 1990s Honda Accord and halved the petrol consumption for only a few thousand dollars. The next step is finding funding to commercialise the devices.
As with most hybrid vehicles, mileage can be improved with smart driving and optimal speeds. Hybrid vehicles are best-suited driving at ;ess than 60 kms an hour. The step can help move toward greener and cleaner electrical generation, and better motoring.
