    With a belt-driven starter generator (BSG) replacing the conventional alternator, the engine is able to restart with almost no noise or vibration. The i40 48V Hybrid can operate in electric-only mode at low speeds and when cruising. The lead-carbon battery pack recharges itself during deceleration and through regenerative braking, with the BSG working as a generator. While accelerating, the BSG supports the engine with its additional 10 kW to reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions.

    In combination with a larger turbocharger, the system’s performance increases to 155 PS (153 hp, 114 kW) and a maximum torque of 360 N·m (266 lb-ft).

    The lead-carbon battery was chosen due to its excellent power-to-cost ratio, rapid charging capability and high levels of durability. It requires no active cooling system and can therefore be stored within the spare-wheel well, ensuring luggage space is not compromised. In addition, the lead-carbon battery is almost completely recyclable at the end of its lifecycle.

    BA made a comment about pricing the other day and it being favorable for the PbC.

    Thereafter, I asked him two questions on whether he knew cost of the PbC and how it fit into the pricing scheme of competitors before he left (basically the info that was blacked out of the FOIA application request).

    The implication being that if he knew pricing before he left then his commentary meant something, but if he didn't then it was no more useful than the blacked out info.

    "Can't really get much darker"

    Ironic, over the years people have said that at various points, but Axion never fails to disappoint.

    BA - Not sure if you noticed this question yesterday - without disclosing anything confidential, were you aware of the exact cost per kwh and how the PbC fit in a cost comparison with competitors before you left the BoD?

    Another day another deal:

    And crickets from our well paid boys at Axion ...

    Another honest question: when does sales incompetence become gross incompetence?

    ii - Axion appears to be the poor choice.

    "Anyway the list given has been enough to keep Axion busy for years past and into the future. Why press these obviously overworked executives to get more involved?"

    huh? emoticon: confused face.

    Drich - 5 known customers.

    Remind me?

    - Bysolar - 1 set still not installed.
    -ePower - still doesn't have 1st truck in fleet hands.
    -NS - took delivery of the batteries a couple years ago and they sit in the NS999 paperweight
    -BMW -?? haven't heard from them in years, questionable.
    - who did I miss - the Navy building that still calls the batteries gel batteries?


    These smaller companies are signing deals, installing batteries, and getting funding ... what is Axion doing ... ok, they are trying to get funding.

    Greensmith article:

    Still no indication Axion has reached out. This Axion story is about as stale as hard bread. John, I am not sure how you find the energy to bother to write articles on it anymore.

    Honest question: When does puffery turn to deception?

    In any event, here is some general news on the Hawaii bidding front -

    http://bit.ly/1nEGQ1M

    Small start up Stem was able to secure a 1MW contract

    "Earlier this month, HECO said that it will use a 1-megawatt energy storage demonstration project developed by Stem Inc., a California-based energy startup that’s part of Hawaii’s Energy Excelerator program, to help it stabilize its grid and integrate more renewables."

    I see a corollary between my adopted city of Tampa and Axion Power. Maybe somebody should contact Gates b/c apparently Gates found Tampa today.
