A Dundee firm has teamed up with one of Europe’s leading technology companies to create a ground-breaking battery they claim will revolutionise the hybrid car market.

Hybrid cars combine conventional petrol engines with battery power to increase fuel efficiency.

The Toyota Prius is the world’s best-selling hybrid with nearly two million cars sold.

Now, lithium ion battery maker Axeon, at Wester Gourdie in Dundee, is to help develop a battery system for a major European car manufacturer. Axeon will work with technical engineering firm Ricardo to supply and integrate a lightweight battery for a pioneering plug-in hybrid vehicle.


The car will feature a unique, bespoke battery system.

Axeon chief executive Lawrence Berns said, “It is difficult to think of a more demanding application or client for our skills, so we were delighted to have been selected to play such a key role in this development programme.

“This car will transform thinking about hybrid cars in every area, especially performance.”

He added, “Our technology will play a key role, underlining our prowess in this competitive field and showing that hybrids can also offer significant advances to performance as well as environmental benefit.”

    The only way I have seen this done is if each bank is local. You would go into her bank and pay the car off and receive a reesale form from her bank. Then go into your bank and pay the car off and get a reesale from your bank. Bring these papers into DMV and have them swapped. Call DMV first if this is doable to check if additional paperwork is required in your state. Not familiar with the process of changing the names on the loans as mentioned above, but that sounds like the way to go if you don’t have cash on hand to pay the cars off, even if just temporary. Was this answer helpful?
