Go Green with your existing cars
The day is not far enough, when you will be able to go green with your existing cars. As per the reports by Economic Times, the ministry of heavy industries is drafting a policy that will provide a norm for manufacturers of hybrid kits that enable existing passenger cars into hybrids.
A hybrid kit will cost between Rs. 70,000 to Rs. 1.5 lakh for smaller cars to bigger cars and the car fitted with hybrid kit will provide atleast 15-25% better efficiency in the existing cars. Apart from that, the good news is that it just takes a few hours to convert your existing car into hybrid car.
Hybrid cars will lead to an effective cut in the emission of greenhouse gases. The regenerative braking and significant battery storage capacity makes it particularly efficient for the city type stop and go driving style.
According to ET, “The final threads of the proposal lies with the ministry of road transport & highways that is testing this technology to standardise and adopt it in existing cars. There are large number of vehicles that could be covered and upgrade in power and mileage so country-wide applicable standards are being worked out,” said Ambuj Sharma, joint secretary, department of heavy industries.
