Question by : What is wrong with putting wind turbines on hybrid vehicles?
See, here’s the thing. Hybrid cars only really work in city traffic where you use the break a lot. On the highway, they run mostly on gas. So why don’t they put wind turbines on it so the air rushing past at 70 mph helps charge the battery? Ignore the obvious aesthetics issues, I am sure they could make a sexy looking design.
Answer by jonboy2five
the aerodynamics of a wind turbine on a car would create excessive drag and negate the mileage of the hybrid vehicle. it would require more power than it produced…
remember, natural wind is “free”, but a cars speed is NOT.
