I stand at a red light in Solna. It is a cold winter day and charging only shows a dash.
and then I know that it is running. The petrol engine wakes up to the fossil life, and it soars straight up in the lap, to shake off the old intorkade bränslerester.
I usually do almost all local driving on electricity. But to-day charging at work krånglat. Despite the fact that the plug was connected correctly and the bulb came on when I left the car in the morning there was no power to the battery.
On the way home and was three strokes soon two, then one and then broke the good feeling that eldriften: to scoot without local exhaust.
which turned into avgasbil among other avgasbilar.
To run the plug-in hybrid becomes a competition against yourself to get as far as it runs on electricity. A component is to see in the calendar when I last refueled gasoline. Two months – completely ok. Three months – yes!
Bye bye fossilmacken is what you long to say a beautiful day!!
So it felt already after the first långtestet with the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid in 2012, and so it still feels after långkört further two plug-in hybrids in 10,000 miles.
with fuel cells, hydrogen is the future. Really it is so obvious. An electric motor is three to four times more energy efficient than a gasoline engine. It requires almost no service. The noise is not, the craps is not down.
Laddhybriden is a bridge in the transition, but it has clear limitations. It will be heavier and more complicated and it gets thirstier when the electricity runs out. However, the correct use can make some difference, as in my four-wheel drive suv Mitsubishi Outlander. It goes now in custody after 3.100 miles, half on the highway. Consumption: 0,46 litres per mile. Without laddhybridteknik had bränsletörsten been twice as high. At least!
