PHASE 1 OF THE NEAR TERM HYBRID PASSENGER VEHICLE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. APPENDIX C: PRELIMINARY DESIGN DATA PACKAGE, VOLUME 1

The methodology used for vehicle layout and component definition is described as well as techniques for system optimization and energy evaluation. The preliminary design is examined with particular attention given to body and structure; propulsion system; crash analysis and handling; internal combustion engine; DC motor separately excited; Ni-Zn battery; transmission; control system; vehicle auxiliaries; weight breakdown, and life cycle costs. Formulas are given for the quantification of energy consumption and results are compared with the reference vehicle.
