New Patent Announced by Axial Vector Is the Missing Link Breakthrough for Hybrid Electric Cars

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - Axial Vector Energy Corporation ("AVEC") (PINKSHEETS: AXVC) (FRANKFURT: BAE1) announced today the filing of a new patent by its Chief Engineer, Douglas Hahn, which is the missing link to make hybrid electric cars a perfect solution for transportation. The uniqueness of the device is that energies normally lost to transmissions and torque converters are recovered to charge the batteries. With a pure electric car, no transmission is needed but if you try to accelerate up a hill, then you are near locked rotor for the electric motor and this is the most inefficient point. Locked Rotor is the Stopped position or the OFF State of an electric motor. This system would allow the electric motor to operate in the most efficient 'zone' while the car continued to accelerate. Douglas Hahn stated, "This, in combination with our generator and engine technology, should make the most fuel efficient vehicle ever produced. What is really exciting is it uses both of our technologies."

Sanjai Chhaunker, President & CEO of AVEC, remarked, "This is all near term technology not like battery technology. This is the first of many new patent filings we will be making as a result of the company's investment in the wonderful engineering team at our new development facility in Virginia. Further announcements can be expected shortly."
