Green Star Products has announced that preliminary testing of its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) has been successfully completed at the Corbin Motor Speedway in Kentucky.
This was a preliminary test for the full demonstration event scheduled during the first week of June. However, this preliminary test did produce some impressive on-road efficiency data as follows:
1) The test run was designed to simulate an intra-city driving delivery truck route at the test track.
2) The run consisted of 400 laps for a total of 100 miles.
3) The test included eight 10-minute delivery stops and a short lunch break during the 100-mile run.
4) The test vehicle was driven by 3 drivers and included 2 track test drivers and Brooks Agnew, President of Global Green Cars.
5) The PHEV required less than 1 gallon of gasoline for its hybrid engine during the historic run. This equates to over 100 miles per gallon in simulated intra-city driving.
Mr. Joseph P. LaStella, President of Green Star Products, stated: "Local media covered the event even though it was only a preliminary test.
"The official verification test will be held the first week of June. However, the practice test clearly indicates the potential fuel and energy savings of this vehicle."
Intra-city driving delivery vehicles are the highest polluters and least energy efficient vehicles in use today on a per mile basis.
For example, 85% of the huge U.S. Post Office fleet travels less than 13 miles per day yet consumes 2 to 4 gallons of gasoline per day.
This is equivalent to a mileage of 3 to 6 miles per gallon. Compare this to the 100 mile test run of the GSPI plug-in hybrid which demonstrated over 100 miles per gallon at its preliminary test run.
