Class Information
Number: 180/165
Name: Motor vehicles > With fluid or mechanical means to accumulate energy (i) derived from motion of vehicle or (ii) obtained from operation of vehicle motor, and give up the energy (1) when needed for vehicle acceleration or (2) to power an auxiliary system of the vehicle
Description: Vehicle provided with means of a fluid or a mechanical nature (e.g., pressure reservoir, flywheel) to receive and retain energy which (I) results from the momentum of the vehicle in ordinary travel, or any other movement of all or part of the vehicle ancillary thereto, or (II) is produced by the operation of the motor of the vehicle (which operation may or may not serve simultaneously a vehicle propelling purpose) which means will, upon demand, feed back the stored energy (1) to aid in starting up or increasing the speed of the vehicle or (2) to drive or otherwise operate a system of the vehicle which serves other than a propelling purpose.
