New hybrid electric car unveiled in Iran

Researchers at Tehran’s Khajeh Nasireddin Industrial University have produced a hybrid electric car fuelled by hydrogen and electrical battery as well as a NANO bicycle, IRNA reported.

According to the report, the new car has a 10-liter trunk for hydrogen enough to drive 400 kilometers.


The executive of the project told IRNA on the sidelines of unveiling the environment-friendly car that the designing and manufacturing of the automobile began three years ago in College of Electrical Science of the Khajeh Nasireddin Industrial University.


‘Due to the difficulties in providing the financial support, implementation of the project took longer than initially scheduled,’ said Seyyed Mohammad-Taqi Bat’haie, expressing delight that the scientific job is finally accomplished.


He said that the main parts of the hybrid car include an AC-DC convertor, an engine RPM control device, the electrical engine itself and an energy management unit.


Professor Bat’haie said that the fuel rod is one of the main energy sources for the car.


It has a system that is capable of providing the entire, or part of the required energy for the electrical engine if the driver presses the button to do so.


‘The battery is the direct provider for the required energy of the electromotor car and it is preferably of the lithium type and can be charged either when connected to the city electricity outlets, or when switched to the fuel rod system, or in connection with photovoltaic cells,’ he added.

The engine power of the Iranian hybrid car is 50 kilowatts and its environmental pollution is next to nothing.

    I think what is being refered to here is a hydrogen “fuel cell” powered vehicle and not a fuel rod.

    I wonder if it is polymer elecrolyte membrane PEM fuel cell… would be interesting.

    Good job by the way! Anyone know the contact info to reach the professor and students that did this?
