Optimal Battery Use Can Make Hybrid Cars 10% More Efficient | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

For long distance driving plug-in hybrid electric vehicles use the internal combustion engine more than necessary. Chalmers researcher Viktor Larsson has developed a method to make the car remember the commuter routes and thereby make optimal use of the battery. The strategy can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10 percent compared to conventional methods. http://bit.ly/1jsIkHV
