First motor for hybrid cars

Honda Motor together with Daido Steel has developed the first ever engine for hybrid cars without using dysprosium and terbium — two scarce rare earth elements — to help reduce manufacturing costs. The two companies have made sure that the neodymium magnet — presenting the highest magnetic force of nature which is essential for electric cars and hybrids — of this engine does not require the use of these two minerals, which were used to withstand high temperatures, EFE news reported. Both dysprosium and terbium, like neodymium are classified as rare earth elements.
