A new technology from enterprising French car company Citroën will be on show at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show. The hi-tech stuff of course has to do with using less fossil fuels and possibly saving the planet, if it’s not too late already.
Called Hybrid Air, the system is a full-hybrid solution that combines compressed air with hydraulic power in order to reduce fuel consumption to a barely noticeable minimum. Citroën says the system is suitable for cars in B and C segments, and also LCVs (light commercial vehicles like vans).
A C3 prototype with the technology will be showcased in Geneva. They say it can achieve a phenomenal average fuel consumption figure of 2.9 litres per 100km and 69 g/km in C02 emissions.
