hybrid basics
Hybrid Basics
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) = Gasoline Engine + Electric Motor + Batteries
  • “No, You Don’t Have to Plug it in!”
  • Momentum from WheelsHelps Recharge Batteries
hybrids have been around longer than you think
Hybrids Have Been AroundLonger than You Think!

This car, made by the Krieger Company in 1903, was one of thousands of electric and hybrid cars being produced at the time. It used a gasoline engine to supplement a battery pack. Henry Ford’s assembly line and the advent of the self-starting gas engine signaled the rapid decline in hybrid cars by 1920.

hybrid advantages
Hybrid Advantages
  • Higher Gas Mileage
  • MUCH Lower Emissions
  • Better Acceleration & Torque
  • Longer Vehicle Life (e.g. Toyota’s 100K Mile Warranty)
  • Lower Life-Cycle Costs
  • HOV, Parking, & Other Privileges …
fuel savings
Fuel Savings:
  • Lifetime MPG in Low-to-Mid 40s(with lead foot)
  • Average 500 miles between fill-ups
  • Uses Regular Gas
emission savings
Emission Savings:
  • “Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle”(SULEV)
  • “Electric-Only” mode(especially when idling)
  • “Ready” for Carbon Regulation … !
cost savings
COST Savings:
  • More time between fill-ups
  • Much more time between regular service
  • Uses Regular Gas
  • “Emissions Exempt!”
  • Tax Savings
  • Insurance Savings … ?
  • Carbon Taxes … ???
limitations and challenges
Limitations and Challenges
  • Vehicle Choices
  • Electric-Only Limitations
  • Tires … ?!
  • Battery Costs … ?
  • Battery Material Shortages … ??
  • Availability of Service … ???

and more to come
And More to Come!
  • Diesel Hybrids from (Ford, Mercury)
  • Bio-Fuel Hybrid (Saab)
  • Wheel-Hub Motors (Mitsubishi)
  • Li-Ion Batteries (Volvo)
  • And … ?
plug in hybrids even more essential
Plug-In Hybrids: Even More Essential
  • Much Longer Electric-Only Range
  • 100+ MPG with “Gasoline Backup”
  • Zero Emissions for Most Driving
  • Centralized Emissions for Electric Power
  • Plug In at Night – the Grid can take it!
  • Cars Powered by Renewable Energy!
  • www.pluginpartners.org
the smart grid and v2g
The Smart Grid and “V2G”
  • Smart Grid: electricity goes both ways
  • Vehicle to Grid (V2G): Get more than 2 hours a day from your car … !
  • Increase Distributed Generation
  • More chances for cars to be powered by Renewable Energy!
the future
The Future … ?
  • Hybrids become a “drivetrain option”
  • Much more to choose from
  • More Flexible & Adaptable Technologies
  • More dire circumstances willencourage more creativity
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Hybrids only a “2% Solution,” but still essential!
  • More fuels to supplement petroleum:biofuels, alcohols, electricity, etc.
  • More integration with more energy infrastructures
conclusions19
Conclusions
  • AND Hybrids are still not as “essential” as
  • Simple Energy Efficiency(i.e. car tuned up & clean, tires fully inflated, smooth driving)
  • Energy Conservation (i.e. combining trips, driving less)
  • And other alternatives(transit, bikes, walking, etc.)
