Jimpqfly (790794) writes "French cars manufacturer PSA (Peugeot) announced an Hybrid Air/Gasoline system, allowing to recycle energy loss from braking (coupling an air engine next to a classic gasoline engine). A simple, smart, an environment friendly way to reach low fuel consumption (less than 3 liters per 100km / more than 80 mpg), without any impact on environment. Compared to electric recycling, the system is more affordable and simple, doesn't need battery recycling nor loading, and has a better global efficiency. You will also be able to drive the car at low speed only using the air system. System could be released on market in 2016." Link to Original Source top
