Can Car Tires Produce Energy?

“The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round,” as the famous children song goes. However, little do we actually think about that concept! You essentially have four Mini Windmills on your vehicle, which emit energy as they move. Not only is energy produced from movement, there is also friction between the tires and the road from constant accelerating and braking.

What if we were to harness this energy, and pull it back into the car?

This theory is a mix of (a) a pedal-powered bicycle and (b) a hybrid car. Rather than a car switching from gas to battery, however, your vehicle would harbor the energy produced from the tires. The vehicle would run on the energy produced from the tires while moving.
