10. I'd like to see this concept gain more traction -->
It turns a conventional gas or diesel car into a plug-in hybrid at much less than the cost of a new vehicle,
as well as saving the energy cost of building that new vehicle: /
The patented system incorporates powerful electric motors which are mounted externally on the rear wheels of a conventional car.
It works equally well with rear and all wheel drive vehicles, and gasoline, diesel, or natural gas fuels.
