Battery-operated lights on ice skates, electric lighting and an electric doorbell at home, the first ideas for his own electric bicycle – Prof. Dr.-Ing. h.c. Ferdinand
The world’s first hybrid vehicle was unveiled to the public on 14 April 1900 at the World Exposition in Paris by Ludwig Lohner and the young Ferdinand
The recuperated energy powered a mechanical flywheel energy storage system in the form of an additional electric motor that was located in the front passenger area. If the driver called up the energy stored there, the flywheel was braked electromagnetically in the generator mode. This meant that the two electric motors on the front axle received sufficient electricity to provide an additional power output of up to 150kW (204hp) for up to eight seconds, meaning the 911 GT3 R Hybrid temporarily changed into a four-wheel drive.
One of the main deciding factors for the breakthrough of E-mobility is infrastructure. By founding the joint venture IONITY, the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group, along with Audi and
* The published consumption (l/100km and Wh/km), emissions (g/km) and kilometre (km) range figures are determined by
Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors, including without limitation: individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental conditions, fuel quality, a vehicle’s or battery’s condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (eg: equipment, wheels or tyres used etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and can also affect the consumption, emission, range and performance values of a vehicle. For hybrid or electric vehicles, published charging times (hour/minutes) are estimated using the vehicle’s charging equipment and European charging facilities, with the battery temperature in optimum condition. CO2 emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being recharged, unless 100% renewable energy is used.
Generally, consumption, emissions, kilometre range and charging times will vary from the published figures in real world Australian driving and charging conditions. Published figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison between vehicles. Please contact an Official
