This was at the NAIAS.
Check out this new tech. As you can see in the pic at the link they built it out of a GM SUV too.
LinkAccording to Furia, the Extreme Hybrid(TM) tests just completed at Michelin’s Laurens Proving Grounds in South Carolina produced …
More than 150 miles per gallon of gasoline based on the EPA Combined Urban/Highway Driving Cycle with 6 days per week of 40 miles per day in all electric mode and one day at 100 miles with assistance of the gas engine. Different driving patterns will produce different results.
40 mile all-electric range on a single, overnight charge.
Extended range of 400 miles with hybrid operation.
Rapid acceleration in all modes of operation, including all electric mode in which no gasoline is burned at all.
Highway speeds up to 87 miles per hour in either all electric or hybrid mode.
Even faster acceleration and higher speeds possible in future production models should the company decide to configure them for such performance.
“Keep in mind that these results were not in a small two-seater, but in a medium-size family SUV designed to support a serious supermarket run or a family’s weekend recreational activities,” Furia said.
