ACCELERATION:
When accelerating, the Dualnote's three electric motors, or integrated motor assists, supplement its 300-horsepower internal combustion engine. A central ultracapacitor provides the juice. BRAKING:
Momentum lost during deceleration is converted into energy by the three electric motors. The energy is used to recharge the ultracapacitor. TURNING:
The inside front wheel doesn't need to travel as fast as the outside wheels during turns, so the electric motor on the inside takes the excess energy and sends it back into the ultracapacitor.
