AFS Trinity Produces 150 mpg Hybrid SUV

AFS Trinity Power Corp. launched a cross-country tour for its XH-150, an extreme hybrid SUV that gets 150 mpg. According to road tests in December at Michelin's Laurens Proving Grounds, the XH-150 accelerated faster than comparable gasoline SUVs in all modes. The XH-150 operated at up to 87 mph and up to 40 miles on a single charge. The car was developed using patent-pending AFS Trinity technology and was built with the help of AFS technology partner, Ricardo, a technology provider and strategic management consultant to the transportation industry.

"Because most Americans drive less than 40 miles a day, driving the XH-150 would mean using no gasoline on most days," says Edward Furia, CEO of AFS. "This is an electric car operated by household current for the first 40 miles with a mid-hybrid mode that adds a gasoline engine that essentially gives the car unlimited range, still with better than gasoline-only mileage."
