PSA Peugeot-Citroën Hybrid Air Car

Automakers are exploring all avenues of clean-energy technology to go farther with fewer CO2 emissions. European automaker PSA Peugeot-Citroën is using compressed air as a storage medium instead of batteries which also add considerable weight. The car operates in three modes – combustion only, air only and combined.

They claim the car can operate on compressed air 80% of the time and expect that by 2020 the vehicle could travel 100 kms (60 miles) on just two litres of fuel. The vehicle incorporates a regenerative braking system that recovers the energy in all operating modes.

PSA Peugeot-Citroën leads the field in France and ranks second in the European Electric car market. They’re adding light commercial vehicles to their EV roster in 2013.
