ELECTRIC VEHICLE PERFORMANCE WITH ALTERNATE BATTERIES

The electric vehicles studied are an 1134 kg (2500 lb) commuter car and a 3175 kg (7000 lb) van. Each is considered as an all- electric vehicle and also as a hybrid. Performance data calculated are range, acceleration, gradeability, and top speed. Advanced batteries having energy densities from 1.19 to 5.95 10**5 J/kg (15 to 75 wh/lb) are considered. A lithium-iron sulfide design and a zinc-nickel oxide design that features a rotating shutter are discussed.
