During the Auto Expo we came across some interesting gizmos, and one of them was the Revolo hybrid solution, that promised to turn any car, petrol or diesel, into an electric hybrid.
Intrigued? We were too and decided to check out how the system works. The Revolo system, from KPIT Cummins, is a parallel hybrid solution. What it does is connect an electric motor in parallel with your engine. The electric motor runs off a stack of batteries that are charged by plugging into a household electric socket. The motor provides “boost” to the regular petrol or diesel engine, reducing the effort of the engine. In effect, it claims to increase “in-city” mileage by about 35% (and this is apparently ARAI certified).
