Corsa Hybrid Concept From GM

GM introduces the Corsa Hybrid concept vehicle. The short film itself is not very informative, but still of interest to those who are into hybrid cars.

The Hybrid Corsa has a Belt Alternator Starter (BAS) mild hybrid system (similar to the Vue Hybrid) and is based on the 55 kW/75 hp Corsa 1.3 CDTI (turbo-diesel). The diesel engine turns off when the vehicle is coming to a stop or when stopped and the electric motor assists the gas engine when moving. But the electric motor would not be capable of moving the car on its own.

The battery is lithium-ion and is recharged through regenerative braking or the diesel engine. The car is rated at 3.75 liters of diesel per 100 km and will emit only 99 g/km of CO2. GM has no plans to bring it into production, however.
