innovating on current hybrid-systems, PSA peugeot citroën has introduced an all-new technology that combines
the gasoline internal combustion engine and compressed air storage – eliminating the need for batteries.
consuming only 2 liters of fuel / 100 km, the ‘hybrid air’ smart control system adapts to different driving styles,
adjusting independently to one of three modes: air (zero emissions), petrol internal combustion or combined.

 

equipped with a hydraulic motor-pump assembly and an automatic transmission working with an epicyclic gear train,
the new system will be implemented into current body styles in 2016 such as the citroën C3 or peugeot 208.
a similar approach is seen in TATA motors’ AIRPOD air-powered urban commuter vehicle.
