Flywheel hybrid vehicle delivers up to 22.4% fuel economy improvement   Print  
Prodrive is responsible for the system?s configuration and integration into the vehicle. They developed the system?s complex control strategy and software including preliminary calibrations. Tuesday, 6th September 2011

Improvements in fuel economy of up to 22.4 percent (in the new ARTEMIS test cycle, which represents typical real-world usage today) have been demonstrated by a research vehicle fitted with a flywheel hybrid system including stop-start. Developed by a consortium of British companies as part of the Government-supported Flywheel Hybrid System for Premium Vehicles (FHSPV) programme, the mechanically-driven flywheel system delivers up to 80bhp (82PS, 60kW) of recovered energy from a self-contained hybrid module.
