NEAR HYBRID PASSENGER VEHICLE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, PHASE 1. APPENDICES A AND B. MISSION ANALYSIS AND PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION STUDIES REPORT, VOLUME 1

The three most promising vehicle use patterns (missions) for the near term electric hybrid vehicle were found to be all-purpose city driving, commuting, and family and civic business. The mission selection process was based principally on an analysis of the travel patterns found in the Nationwide Transportation Survey and on the Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. origin-destination studies data. Travel patterns in turn were converted to fuel requirements for 1985 conventional and hybrid cars. By this means, the potential fuel savings for each mission were estimated, and preliminary design requirements for hybrid vehicles were derived.
