This car was retrofitted with a new 3 cylinder steam engine.
| Car with Steam Engine prototype
Meet the people who have modern day steam engine. It’s cheap, efficient, and compact & could change the worlds political/sociological landscape.
Look at the facts and modern history of the steam power engine
and car. Also consider the consequences upon society the only ones who will lose with this modern day steam engine loose upon the world are the rich, government and Electric power companies. The poor and middle class would be the real winners. Either these people at VW and Enginion were told something
, or they are incredibly short sighted as to think that the world is not ready buy a modern day steam powered car. Maybe it’s just greed. See Engine here…http://www.amovis.de/en/simulation.htm
Looking at the consequences it’s not surprising that even the German government with all social programs and state sponsored schools would oppose the release of this new steam powered car the EZEE03
What does it mean for a modern steam power car to be sold to the public? It means that the taxes collected through the Gasoline Tax and used to maintain the government and infrastructure will not be collected. This alone will cause far and wide reaching effects.
Governments will have to find other sources of taxation, Roads will be neglected and municipal pensions will have to be abolished.
But the poor will have power to build, power and money to innovate and invent. That money that today goes to the Government and petrol companies will be invested and spend in other areas.
From 1996, a R&D subsidiary of the Volkswagen group called Enginion AG was developing a system called ZEE (Zero Emissions Engine). It produced steam almost instantly without an open flame, and took 30 seconds to reach maximum power from a cold start. Their third prototype, EZEE03, was a three-cylinder unit meant to fit in a Škoda Fabia automobile. The EZEE03 was described as having a “two-stroke” (i.e. single-acting) engine of 1,000 cc (61 cu in) displacement, producing up to 220 hp (164 kW) (500 N·m or 369 ft·lbf). Exhaust emissions were said to be far below the SULEV standard. It had an “oilless” engine with ceramic cylinder linings using steam instead of oil as a lubricant. However, Enginion (link) found that the market was not ready for steam cars, so they opted instead to develop the “Steamcell” power generator/heating system based on similar technology.
