Hagora by Segula Technologies - Great-Looking Hybrid Set for Paris Debut [Video]
It is called the Hagora, and it is a conventional hybrid vehicle, despite having ultra-futuristic styling and details. It measures 3.8 meters long, 1.25 meters high and 1.80 meters wide, giving it a robust and purposeful stance. It is reportedly powered by a two-stroke Rotax BRP engine with direct injection, which works in tandem with an electric motor which produces 100 hp. The combined output of 220 hp is transmitted to the road via a CVT gearbox.
It also features smartphone integration and an electric air-conditioning compressor, which is considerably more efficient than a normal belt-driven one. Now, to really get your green juices flowing, it is worth mentioning that 85% of it is made from recycled materials.
According to Jean-Bernard Faivre, Chairman of the Department of Automotive and Commercial Vehicles at Segula Technologies, said: "Its presentation in preview at the Mondial de l'Automobile 2012 opens new perspectives for Segula Technologies and manufacturers for whom we work. Consider for example the hybrid drivetrain: its simplicity, low cost and compact allow to conquer new markets, particularly emerging countries in Asia, South America and the Middle East.“
