  • The relative attractiveness of electric and hybrid (electric/heat engine) subcompact passenger cars was studied by comparing the total vehicle weight, selling price, ownership cost, and total energy use of computer-synthesized designs having the same power-to-weight ratio and using batteries based on the same technology. It was found that in all respects the hybrid designs were more attractive than the all-electric designs, with the advantages of the hybrids increasing significantly as the power-to-weight ratio was increased. The comparisons were made for city driving, and the relative attractiveness of the hybrid designs was found to be independent of annual mileage up tomore » 12,000 miles/yr. Both hybrid and electric vehicles benefit markedly from the use of an advanced battery such as sodium-sulfur. Such a battery is required before the hybrid passenger car can save both gasoline and total energy compared to a conventional ICE car of the same size.« less
  • New types of electric capacitors may provide, within several years, power capacitors which could be used as energy storage devices in serial hybrid electric car drives instead of a battery. This paper discusses how to determine the required size of such a capacitor used as the sole energy storage device. The performance requirements and parameters influencing the size of the capacitor are defined and a model of a hybrid car system is proposed to determine the size of the capacitor. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the choices in selecting the capacitor size and to provide an estimate of themore » performance of a hybrid vehicle with capacitive energy storage. 4 refs.« less
