New Peugeot declared 'greener than its electric rivals'

A car that can run on nothing more than air has been a far-flung fantasy since the inception of the automotive industry. Car makers have been searching for the perfect environmentally friendly fuel. Now, the Peugeot 2008 Hybrid Air promises to do just that. Far more ecologically sound than the current breed of "green" vehicles that combine electric engines with traditional ones, this new model will revolutionize the industry.

When it comes to accelerating or climbing hills, the combined or 'hybrid' mode is preferable as the vehicle receives power from both engines.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It has a conventional gas engine linked to a hydraulic air motor and pump. Air is pumped into a cylinder in the manner of a balloon being inflated, using surplus energy from the gas engine, in addition to energy from the wheels and heat from the brakes.

This diagram shows how the new hybrid car works. While the it is moving, air is pumped into a cylinder using surplus energy from the petrol engine, plus energy from the wheels and heat from the brakes.


The air is then released to drive the hydraulic motor - allowing the car to run on air, petrol, or a combination of the two.

Motorists will be able to use zero-emissions air power for lower-speed driving in cities. The feature is activated automatically when the car is doing under 43 miles per hour.

The Peugeot 2008 Hybrid Air has a conventional petrol engine linked to a hydraulic air motor and pump, allowing it to run on air, petrol, or a combination of the two - depending on driving conditions.


When it comes to accelerating or climbing hills, the combined or "hybrid" mode is preferable as the vehicle receives power from both engines. And for long-distance cruising, traditional gasoline power is best.

Other hybrids, such as the Toyota Prius - rely on heavy and expensive batteries that are difficult to dispose of. Batteries can also go flat in purely electric cars and leave the driver stranded.

The new Peugeot will need no batteries. Instead, it will replenish itself automatically by re-using energy that is 'lost' when slowing down and braking.

The SUV, available from 2016 will be the first of a new generation of Peugeots and Citroens running partially on air.

It currently manages around 94 miles per gallon but engineers say that by 2020, future Peugeots and Citroens could average 117.

Around 100 elite scientists have spent the past three years working on the air-powered car in top-secret conditions at Peugeot's research and development center at Velizy, just south of Paris.

"We are not talking about weird and wacky machines. These are going to be in everyday cars," a spokesman for manufacturer PSA Peugeot-Citroen said.
