Where is the compressed air stored in the PSA Hybrid Air?
The compressed air tank straddles the central spine of the car, visible in the shape of the blue tank running along the middle of this cutaway. When the driver coasts or brakes to a halt, the energy dissipated as heat is harnessed to drive a pump which fills up the compressed air tank. Imagine a diver’s oxygen tank but rammed with air at even higher pressures. It’s this dense energy which will have the power to turn the wheels of the car at town speeds.
