Abstract 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)
Highlights Notes Presents the design, feasibility, costs, and performance of an automobile using an internal combustion engine transmission coupled with an electric motor.
