Volvo ReCharge Hybrid Concept Car

September 22, 2007

This is ReCharge, a C30-based concept car by Volvo unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show. This sleek thing will be able to take you about a 100 kilometers on electricity before it falls back on its 1.6-liter Flexifuel engine. According to Volvo, this car generate about 66% lower emissions of carbon dioxide compared with the best hybrid cars available on the market today. Style and environmental friendliness in one package.
Now, please build some more electric fuel kiosk so this can be reality!

    Yeah, and the sources for that electricity must be renewable, ’cause if not what would the benefit be if we use fossil fuels to generate it?

    @ASE
    I think that per mile, plug-in electrics actually release fewer pollutants than conventional internal combustion engines. Not completely certain of that, but I’m sure I heard it.

    Sounds good, but what are we going to do with thousands and thousands of expended toxic batteries one day? They are rechargable, but one day it is over for even the best, and then what? Are we replacing one technology that is dirty and toxic to use with another technology that is dirty and toxic when it is not in use any longer?
