Citroen's Hybrid Air Tech Already Winning Awards
We've explained the Hybrid Air system at length in a previous report, which you should definitely check out, but it's making today's new because Fleet World has honored it with an award for technological innovation.
The system will enter production in 2016 and promises to bring emissions below 100 grams per kilometer across the range. Fleet World though the system was so revolutionary, some might try to copy it.
“Citroën has a long-standing reputation as a technological pioneer, and Hybrid Air is the latest in an impressive lineage of green innovations, which have debuted in its product portfolio. This simple, but effective, solution will offer substantial efficiency improvements for Citroën's future superminis without the expense of hybrid batteries. A lot of other manufacturers will be wondering why they didn't get there first," said the Fleet World Honours judging panel.
“Hybrid Air is a ground-breaking system that could revolutionise the automotive industry as one of the most viable future powertrains in terms of efficiency and affordability. We’re delighted this innovative technology has been officially recognised with this prestigious award and Citroën looks forward to introducing the many benefits of Hybrid Air to motorists in the not too distant future,” added Martin Hamill, Citroen UK’s Fleet Director.
