Chrysler's first electric vehicle, a version of the Fiat 500, will hit
the market next year, as will hybrid versions of the Chrysler 300 =

full-size sedan and the Town & Country minivan.

Add to that evaluation work on a hydraulic hybrid that uses hydraulic =

pumps, rather than electric motors and batteries, to augment the =

gasoline engine ... The technology is not new. The EPA developed it =

about a decade ago and has been using it on garbage trucks and UPS =

delivery vans that do a lot of start and stop city driving. The system
uses hydraulic fluid and pumps to recover energy when a vehicle =

brakes, and uses the resulting hydraulic pressure to propel the =

vehicle. Chrysler approached the EPA about testing its viability in a
minivan to see if it can be packaged easily and would meet the needs =

of a family in city driving. =


The benefit is a hydraulic system would cost substantially less than =

hybrids, already on the road, that pair electric motors and batteries =

with gasoline engines. [=A9 2011 The Detroit News. All rights reserved.]
