The current battery design of the battery pack on the Prius is a flywheel-free power supply. The flywheel is designed as a small rotating mass that helps power the internal combustion engine. According to the European Standards Institute (E.S.I.), a flywheel-free system would provide around 6 to 8 percent of peak power in a 30-cycle cycle. The electric range of the Prius range of about 20,000 miles.
A more realistic flywheel-free power system would produce at least as much power, and likely considerably more of it, than the current design.
What would it cost?
The initial price of the new battery pack design depends on the cost of producing a small number of high-quality lithium-ion batteries of the requisite quality, which is expected to range from $1 (around 5 cents per kilowatt hour) in California to $45 per kilowatt hour in Europe, according to the E.S.I. The cost of batteries varies according to the quality of the battery used, including the type of battery and the state of research or development of the car company in question. The cost of a single, high-yield, lithium-ion cell for the new lithium-ion battery, the first generation battery that Toyota plans to put on the new Prius, is roughly the same as the cost of that same cell, in the United States, that will be used on the new Prius until it is replaced by the Toyota Mirai hybrid, at an estimated cost of about $1.6 billion.
Is this a problem?
This is a small but significant technical problem that would have to be solved and solved fast. The best way to speed up this process, according to the company, is to “launch the project before the Toyota Mirai hybrid is ready to go into production.”

The first day of voting in the Democratic primary is going to be a really rough day for Hillary Clinton. For what’s clear now is that the Democrats aren’t just trying to prevent Bernie Sanders from stealing the nomination from Hillary; they want to use it as a means to undermine her in the general election.
In their zeal to stop Sanders from winning the Democratic nod, the Clinton campaign and party apparatus are now going to start leaking and leaking and leaking to reporters.
A quick look at some of the key media stories coming out of Iowa tonight (where Bernie Sanders held his
