Cars waste a lot of energy. Well, you may think the mods on your sports car are yieldingextra power on your car, but the truth of the matter is that only about 14% of energy contained in gasoline is used to propel your car forward. The rest is lost through escaping heat and driveline losses, and more. So, Volvo wants to recapture some of that energy and use it to charge its electric cars. Well, the power will come from kinetic energy of passing cars recaptured through hydraulics. See the Volvo XC 90 get a full battery from Jeeps and Audis and remember that next time you refill your gas-guzzler.
That was really over the top. What do you think of this next video?
