How does the new Peugeot Citroen Hybrid Air work?
The Peugeot Citroen Hybrid Air system operates like a normal hybrid car, so there’s a conventional petrol engine to power the wheels when you’re driving at faster speeds out of town or on a motorway.
But at lower, in-town speeds, energy stored in the form of compressed air is used to turn the wheels instead. Future small Peugeots and Citroens, like the 107 and C3, will be able to whirr silently around town with no emissions from the tailpipe.
