The other day we rode to a hybrid auto class in a 1966 Jeep. Basically, it’s a death trap that includes no roll-over protection, gas tank under the driver’s seat, and lap belts that will keep only your hips from being cut off, rubbed off, or pinned under something during a crash. Technology in vehicles has certainly changed over the years.
Anyways, we had a chance to look at a Honda Civic and Honda Insight after a quick powerpoint presentation about the types of hybrids on the road today. For regular updates about vehicle construction and alternative fueled vehicles check out Boron Extrication. It seems to be a never ending challenge to not only identify alternative fueled vehicles, but also know what’s inside them. The more you read, train with the technology available, and physically examine hybrid cars; the better prepared you will be.
Pretty straight forward look at this hybrid by using Moditech’s Crash Recovery System.
The hybrid Civic exposes rescuers to another challenge. This car has a vertical hybrid battery behind the back seat. In the event of an under-ride how are you going to tunnel? Read on HERE.
