HYBRID DRIVE WITH KINETIC ENERGY STORE AS VEHICLE DRIVE

Conventional motor vehicles have very high fuel consumption when traveling in city traffic. The reason for this lies in the absence of energy regeneration during braking and in uneconomical part-load consumption of the internal combustion engine. Fuel consumption can be reduced considerably by using a hybrid drive with a gyro component. Road tests show that the fuel consumption is reduced by 40 to 45 percent below that of transport vehicles with conventional Otto engines. (ERA citation 01:016450)
