Hybrid van

A HYBRID van has been created to extol the virtues of the technology to fleets.

Azure Dynamics, GKN Autostructures and Ingimex converted the standard diesel Ford Transit to a diesel/electric hybrid and will show it at the CV Show at Birmingham’s NEC next month. A central computer analyses speed, engine load and battery condition and powers the van by electricity at low speeds and diesel power as speeds increase.

It will aim to raise awareness and assess the acceptance of hybrid technology for commercial vehicles in the UK.
