Kit that turns any car into a hybrid

This looks like an interesting idea from a TN university.  It uses magnets and I love magnets.  Pretty creative too.

  I sure hope they design a way to keep road junk out of the
rotor/stator area. I had a motor eat one magnet and it destroyed
the rest with the fragments. Imagine a rock fly up into the works
and you have a mess for sure. No more hybrid......

That appears only to be CAD type pictures and I didn't see anything that indicates they have a real car at this time.  Also their claims of charge time and miles per charge are far in excess of anything I know that could currently provide that power and fast charge time.  At least nothing that is known to be available currently in terms of battery or super caps could do that so either they have come up with a new high power density super battery of some sort or they are dreaming.  Maybe they are counting on Quenco to be in production very soon...  But then if that was the case it would never need recharging   ;)

Yes, so far from the video clips,  it appears as a CGI only presentation. It would be very interesting to see how they propose to recharge it in less than ten minutes. No info on the charge capacity is shown above, but at less than ten minutes, and comparing it for example to Tesla S with 85 KWh capacity, it would require a significant amperage for such a short period of time.
As usual time will tell…
Thanks
