Honda Develops Two-Motor Plug-in Hybrid Drive
Honda Motor Co. has unveiled a newly developed two-motor hybrid system that will go into its next-generation hybrid cars starting next year.
A key feature of Honda's low-emissions "Earth Dreams Technology," the new system will equip new hybrid cars with two electric motors instead of the single one of current models, maximizing fuel efficiency and overall performance.
At start-up and low speeds, the electric motors will drive the car. During acceleration the car will kick into "hybrid" mode, using both its gasoline engine and electric motors, while at high speeds the gasoline engine will take over completely.
