PHASE 1 OF THE NEAR TERM HYBRID PASSENGER VEHICLES DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. APPENDIX A: MISSION ANALYSIS AND PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION STUDIES, VOLUME 1

Applicable data was categorized and processed according to vehicle usage and trip parameters with consideration of payload (cargo, people, size) and driving cycles. A mission that maximizes the fuel potential savings for the total 1985 vehicle fleet was selected. Mission requirements that have a bearing on conventional and hybrid vehicle performance and characteristics were identified and formulated and a reference ICE vehicle was selected that meets or exceeds all requirements while maintaining within applicable constraints. Specifications for vehicle performance were established based on mission requirements, mission related vehicle characteristics, and fuel consumption.
