Jaguar has unveiled an XF hybrid prototype at the Low Carbon Vehicle event in the United Kingdom.

While details are limited, Autocar is reporting that the XF features an advanced flywheel hybrid system (FHS). Currently undergoing devolvement, the FHS has a stop-start city mode which allows the flywheel to collect energy during braking and dispute it during start-up. When combined with an engine stop-start system, fuel consumption would be lowered by 20 percent.

Besides the extra efficiency, the FHS delivers an 80 hp boost for seven seconds. While that's not very long, it would come in handy during overtaking. Production seems feasible, but Jaguar hasn't made any announcements of yet.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
