ELECTRIC AND HYBRID VEHICLE PROGRAM. 3RD ANNUAL REPORT TO CONGRESS FOR FY 1979

The Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Research, Development, and Demonstration Act of 1976 (P.L. 94-413) seeks to reduce petroleum consumption by encouraging the introduction and use of EHV and of hybrid vehicles. This third annual report to the US Congress on the EHV Program summarizes activities during FY 1979, describing ongoing efforts, and recommending legislative action to facilitate further progress. The number of vehicles committed to market demonstrations increased from more than 200 in FY 1978 to almost 800 and demonstration sites rose from 16 to 57. There was a modest increase of commercial interest and public awareness of the potential of EHV also was heightened. Summaries are reported on market demonstrations, incentives, research and development, product engineering, commercialization activities, and legislative recommendations.
