    gr8 news. I would keenly follow up on what comes next on this.

    would love to see this being excise exempt coz the benefits it accrues would translate to huge direct and indirect saving for the nation.

    ARAI gave a certification for 40% improvement in FE in test conditions. It would be less than 40% in real life.
    Initial cost to buy is huge and you need to carry 140 kg extra weight of battery in your car.
    But it for sure will bring emissions down which I think is real benefit of this hybrid system.

    this seems interesting. but cng a better solution i guess if you want to save money. and this thing weights too much.

    Not only it weighs much, but also the batteries will die off in year or two, so one would be required to replace those 120kgs of batteries, costing a bomb :eek:
