Plug-In Hybrid Retrofit Kit designed for mileage savings

Powered by at least nine MTSU students’ work since 2008, Dr. Charles Perry continues driving toward success in the development of the plug-in hybrid retrofit kit for any car. Perry, who holds the Russell Chair of Manufacturing Excellence, and a five-member team saw gas mileage increase anywhere from 50 to 100 percent on a 1994 Honda station wagon retrofitted with laboratory prototype plug-in hybrid capability.

  1. LOL I rode in this car to a SAE Baja event in Montreal. When asked by Canadian border patrol what the lever behind the gear shifter was, he replied “its the flux capacitor.” This comment raised suspicion and we had to wait while they dismantled and searched the car. Apparently, the customs officers at the border have never heard of Back to the Future and thought the lever that switched from gas to electric was a hidden compartment latch release. (Don’t know why they would think that a totally obvious lever released a hidden compartment). 4 hours wasted at the border.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
