    I was reading about Nissan's hybrid system which will soon be seen here and it's different to most.
    The vehicle only runs on electric motors powered by batteries. There is a petrol motor, but it never powers the wheels. Instead it acts like a generator and switches on as necessary to charge the batteries.
    Nissan claims benefits including simplicity compared with most hybrids.
    Will be interesting to see how it goes.

    That is the most efficient use of internal combustion engine, run at a constant speed with no gearbox , The mazda system uses the same philosophy but with a miniature rotary engine driving the ' range extender' generator
