Hybrid Air Car Getting 81 MPG in the City


New York Times - March 1, 2013

French auto man­u­fac­turer PSA Peu­geot Cit­roen is exper­i­ment­ing with the Hybrid Air, which com­bines a con­ven­tional gaso­line engine with a hydraulic drive. This new hybrid will get around 81 miles per gal­lon in the city, which is much more effi­cient than exist­ing gasoline-electric hybrids such as the Toy­ota Prius. PSA Peu­geot Cit­roën says it plans to begin rolling out Hybrid Air cars by 2015 or 2016.
