Fluctuating fuel prices and poor urban health due to air pollution have become a reality in all developing countries. On one hand, there is a large ageing population of existing vehicles with old, inefficient & polluting engines. On the other hand, pure Electric Vehicles are not the answer just yet since power generation is through predominately coal based grids and infrastructure for charging is lacking.
The solution lies only in reducing fossil fuel intensity of transportation: ‘grid independent’ electrification of in-use vehicles, by a product designed specifically for the needs of the developing countries.
With a vision of creating Carbon Free Transportation, Altigreen’s Indo-US team has developed high-end technology that enables migration of petrol / diesel vehicles to hybrid electrics. After 4 years of development and testing, pilot trials are underway with commercial taxi and truck fleets.
Altigreen Propulsion Labs is based in Bangalore, India.
Our proprietary, low cost, retrofit Hybrid Power Intelligent Exchange Drive (HyPixi) system converts fossil fuel based vehicles that are already in use into hybrids. With advanced regenerative braking, the system is grid-independent, requiring no external charging.
- 25% improvement in mileage
- Dramatic reduction in harmful tailpipe emissions, especially in densely populated cities
- Quick RoI – recover investment in under 12 months
- Reduced wear-and-tear so less maintenance
- Warranty on kit and the batteries
- First variant can be installed on 4-wheelers under 2 tonnes GVW; other variants for larger vehicles
- Conforms to Government notified standards, has been thoroughly tested and certified under Central Motor Vehicle Rules
- Ready for fitment across India
Designed, developed and tested 100% in India, for India and the emerging economies of the world
Altigreen has successfully tested its HyPixi system with petrol/diesel vehicles (M1 & N1 Class). It does not affect the original engine’s robustness or durability and provides the ideal platform for heavy-duty, retrofit or OEM-interfaced installation.
Patented dual-electric machine ensuring motoring assist and active regenerative braking for optimum efficiency.
No range anxiety while driving, no dependence for charging on grid power, the generation of which is seldom green.
Proprietary electronics for efficient power management, model-based software adapts to individual driving patterns.
Mobile and Web Apps to monitor the Green Score, analyze the drive and alert for proactive maintenance of vehicle.
