Hybrid Vehicle market in India


Every car sold in India from 2030 will be electric, under new government plans that have delighted environmentalists and dismayed the oil industry. Hybrid vehicle have been called a “bridge” toward pure electric vehicles. A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is one that relies on two different power sources.

Hybrid vehicle have been called a “bridge” toward pure electric vehicles. A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is one that relies on two different power sources.



Hybrid vehicle share an overlapping set of technologies to make their systems work. Their basic goal is to maximize the use of the electric portion of the drivetrain because electric motors are more efficient and produce no emissions.
A Hybrid Electric Vehicle combines a chemically fuelled (gasoline, diesel, or alternate fuel) internal combustion (IC) engine, an Electric motor, an energy storage device (battery) & regenerative braking.

The combined system improves the overall vehicle efficiency to increase fuel economy and reduce tailpipe emissions.

By the layout hybrid vehicles can be classified as series hybrid, parallel hybrid & series-parallel hybrid.

Hybrid vehicle are also classified based on the degree of hybridization as micro hybrid, mild hybrid, medium hybrid, full hybrid & plug in.

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Driving A Car With Automatic Transmission

Individuals associated with the automotive industry iterate that the automatic transmission is a great invention. Actually, an automatic car has opened up a whole new world for car owners.
Both professional and novice drivers love to drive a car fitted with automatic transmission. This is because it is straightforward and easy to drive an automatic vehicle than a car fitted with the manual-shift gearbox. Think about the bumper-to-bumper story we have in the cities! However, it is very important to drive a car with automatic transmission carefully because you could end up damaging your car. Some damages, if they happen, cannot be rectified even by expert mechanics. Therefore, it is best that you avoid the following mistakes when driving your automatic vehicle.

You would save a little bit of fuel when you coast down a hill in neutral gear. However, it is very negligible. In modern automatic transmissions, fuel supply to the engine is auto…

The Most awaited Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0

Yamaha has officially unveiled the R15 Version 3.0 in Indonesia. The all-new 2017 R15 is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.04 Bhp @ 10000 rpm and maximum torque of 14.7 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, and the key rivals of R15 V3.0 are 2017 Honda CBR150R and Suzuki GSX-R150. As of now, Yamaha has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of R15 V3 in India, it is expected to be here within next 3-4 months .




Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is expected to be launched in 2017 but as of now there are no official launch dates. So, we will have to wait a bit more before the official statement comes in. It is expected to be priced between Rs. 1.30-Rs. 1.35 lakhs (ex-showroom). It is expected to share its design elements from M-Slaz, Yamaha YZF R125 and YZF R6.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
