Chrysler, Eaton and EPA Collaborating on Hydraulic Hybrid
Chrysler Group said on Wednesday that it was working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to adapt a hydraulic hybrid system for potential use in an upcoming version of its popular minivan.
The announcement came at a joint appearance by Chrysler Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.
The project comes as automakers scramble to meet strict new fuel economy standards expected to take effect after 2016. Chrysler, which is operating under the management control of Fiat SpA (FIA.MI), is the only major automaker in the U.S. market without a hybrid offering.
