Israeli company Aquarius Engines has completed development of the power system for hybrid vehicles, consisting of a power generator, combined with the internal combustion engine of a completely new design. This engine has the highest to date, the value of its power to weight ratio, light weight, and its design has only one moving part, which leads to simplicity of design and the low cost of its production.
The company Aquarius Engines has already received a patent for the design of the engine developed by them and is now negotiating with the Peugeot company on the acquisition of licenses for the production of engines, which, according to preliminary estimates will cost 92 euros (100 dollars). High efficiency and light weight of the new engine will allow hybrid vehicles to overcome the distance of 1,600 kilometers on one tank of fuel, which is twice the capacity of existing cars.
The engine design Aquarius Engines consists of only 20 parts and assemblies, and the only moving part in it is a piston, moving in a horizontal plane. This engine test, carried out by the German engineering FEV, showed that its efficiency is twice the efficiency of existing internal combustion engines.
Unfortunately, the imminent appearance of Aquarius Engines engine system in hybrid cars can not count.”Automotive companies need an average of seven to ten years to introduce new technologies into mass production” – says Franco Gonzalez (Franco Gonzalez), a leading specialist research company IDTechEx, – “Therefore Peugeot company will significantly increase and strain to catch up and to compete with Tesla, BYD, Nissan and other companies that have gone far ahead in the production of electric cars. ”
This technology, in addition to the car, it can be used to create a high-performance mobile power generators and other areas that require the use of ultra-efficient, easy simple, inexpensive, internal combustion engine.
