An experimental and analytical study was conducted. The broad objectives of the studies were as follows: to select and analyze the performance of series and parallel configured heat engine/battery hybrid family cars; to define the relative efficiencies, weight and costs of hybrid power trains; to generate data characteristics of selected three-component catalysts; to perform preliminary materials screening and development of a hydrocarbon emission trap (hydrocarbon accumulator); and to demonstrate that a hybrid car with an internal combustion engine could meet the 1975/76 emission goals. The document describes the work done and presents the results and conclusions. (Author)
