Electric hybrid vehicles and their consumptions

auto ibride
  For all of us, the electric hybrid vehicles and the electric pure ones by now mean reduction in consumption and therefore less CO2 emissions and more environmental protection, even if there are conflicting opinions because of the damages caused from the extraction of metals needed to build electric motors (see the post ‘Interview to professor Ivan Maio of the Polytechnic in Turin‘). Electric...

Pure electric vehicles and the heat/electric hybrid ones

  More and more frequently we attend the launch of new pure and hybrid electric cars or heat/electric ones, so it comes naturally to wonder: what is the differences of the product they offer and for what types of use?

Hybrid-Air PSA, the other face of the hybrid car

hybrid-air-sezione
  It won’t be the compressed air car but it is the closer step to the utopia that it’s possible today.

Avoiding any mistakes, we...

Prius
  The main difference between the second generation Prius and the present one (third generation), is shown in the picture above. Toyota managed to eliminate the chain that led motion from planetary gear, positioned between the two electric motors, to the differential one. Japanese engineers have adopted a single pair of helical gears, considerably reducing transmission losses. The results of these...

Full of electrons and go!

  What will be the futuristic propulsive solution for private transportation? It is hard to say which one will prevail. The hybrid or pure electric perhaps, well aware of the current benefits and limitations of those innovative systems. Beyond this, however, I believe that innovation must include an alternative to the traditional concept of car overcoming the paradox of more or less comfortable...
