BSR launches the all new BSR FU-EL that allows you to ad an extra electric motor to your petrol or diesel powered vehicle.
The system has been developed during the past two years and incorporates an electric motor fitted to the drive shafts not powered by the standard engine.
As in all hybrid cars the BSR FU-EL electric motor will work as a power generator, re-charging the batteries while breaking and the regular engine will power up automatically as soon as the voltage level in the batteries falls below a certain level.
Normal charging is done through a standard 230 Volt socket and the standard action range is approx. 20-25 km of driving. This range can be increased slightly if the driver applies the brakes frequently.
The electrical motor produces 22kW (equivalent to 30 hp's) and can of course be enabled in parallel with the standard engine and will hereby provide a substantial performance increase. The driver can enable the extra power using a switch labeled "Extra Power", and if a green light is flashing, there is enough battery capacity available. The extra power will be enabled automatically once the accelerator pedal is pushed down completely. (As a "kick-down" in auto tranny cars).
This new product is called BSR FU-EL and will also be available as a "twin version" in the near future providing 60 hp's extra.
The FU-EL is available for most common 2WD vehicles on the market.
