An application analysis study of energy storage systems for automotive propulsion was conducted over a period of four years. The purpose was to identify the most promising energy storage devices and the vehicular missions for which the resultant propulsion systems are best suited. Projected costs of the vehicles are used to discuss the study's findings. Additionally, some preliminary findings concerning an assessment of the impact on energy storage device requirements of current transportation developments and trends are discussed.
