1957 Pontiac Chieftain E-Charger System

1957 Pontiac Chieftain E-Charger System
We’re nevertheless astonished with the company’s SEMA make, when considering on incredulous of H-Line Conversions claims thinking the E-Charger bolt-in hybrid drive system. What began being as an orderly ol’ 1957 Pontiac Chieftain has been given an evil colorant job, air-conditioned covered body-side cut and quality hypocrite wheels. The E-Charger part of this SEMA make consists of an electric motor joined to the crankshaft via a loop-belt, very akin in use to GM’s eAssist hybrids.

The electric motor can provided up to 150 lb-ft of torque to the engine’s crankshaft and it is energy by an arrangement of artilleries that can be charged via a quality EV charge port. Each charge is expressed to be good for up to 200 miles or around four hrs of driving and while the engine can give some regen to the artilleries, it’s accounted as a plug-in-dependent system.

Given the weight penalty 500 pounds, we imagine that the E-Charger increases fuel system only on relatively uneconomical motors tied to already dense automobiles. GM saw fuel economy transformations in the double-digit proportions when it increased akin hybrid equipment to its full-size SUV cars a few years ago, but it was partly due to those versions, frankly terrible fuel economy moving a debased room for any enhancement. Still, we applaud the consolidation of easy plug-in hybrid technology to vehicles like this Pontiac, if only for the originality of perceiving a charging port in its quarter-panel.
